We are improving our accessibility!

We have been looking at different ways to improve the accessibility of our services. We have been working to improve our overall website accessibility, our Info Guides, as well as working with contactSCOTLAND-BSL to improve access to our service for deaf BSL users.

You can now contact us via contactSCOTLAND-BSL  contactSCOTLAND BSL logo

We are happy  that BSL users can now contact us through contactSCOTLAND-BSL. ContactSCOTLAND-BSL is an on-line British Sign Language interpreting service. It connects deaf BSL users throughout Scotland via a video relay service (VRS) with Scotland’s public authorities and voluntary organisations (Third Sector). Using this service Deaf people can contact us and we can contact you! Find out more on the contactSCOTLAND website.

Scottish Accessible Information Forum (SAIF) Training

Our Information Team recently completed SAIF training on accessibility. Following this we are now aiming to change all our Information Guides into an accessible format. We will start with all our word documents and follow with all the PDF’s.

Website Access Audit

Towards the end of last year our website received an Accessibility Audit. We are now in the processes of making these recommended changes to our website in the hope that our website will be accessible as possible in the near future!

If you have comments or feedback about any of the changes we have been making then contact us– we’d love to hear from you!
