Accessibility statement

This website aroundealing.com is operated by Ealing Council. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. This is our accessibility statement.

AbilityNet provides advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability – including how to:

  • Make your mouse easier to use
  • Use your keyboard instead of a mouse
  • Talk to your device
  • Make your device talk to you
  • Make text larger
  • Change your colours
  • Magnify the screen.

How accessible this website is

Ealing Council is committed to making its websites accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018. A rebuild and upgrade of this site (formerly ealingnewsextra.co.uk – and now called aroundealing.com) took place in July 2021 and made a number of improvements in this regard.

Reporting accessibility problems with this website

We are interested in improving the accessibility of aroundealing.com. If you find any problems not listed on this page or think we are not meeting accessibility requirements, please complete this form to report it.

Enforcement procedure

The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) is responsible for enforcing the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018 (the ‘accessibility regulations’). If you are not happy with how we respond to your complaint, contact the Equality Advisory and Support Service (EASS).

PDFs and other documents

We provide past editions of Around Ealing magazine in interactive e-magazine format, and also in PDF format.

The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they are not essential to providing our services.

Any new PDFs or Word documents we might publish should meet accessibility standards and we will endeavour to make sure they do.

Images

Some images in older news page archives (pre-September 2018) may not have a text alternative (alt text), so the information in them is not available to people using a screen reader. All images uploaded from, and including, September 2018 do have alt text and when we publish new content we endeavour to make sure our use of images meets accessibility standards.

Preparation of this accessibility statement

This statement was prepared on 30 July 2021.

aroundealing.com is due to be tested by Ealing Council using automated software Siteimprove.
