The Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry is committed to taking, where possible, an accessible approach to its work. This includes our website.

We are continuously working to make our website as easy to use and accessible as possible for everyone. We offer:

  • easier-to-read colours
  • larger fonts
  • plain English
  • keyboard-only navigation

Our website endeavours to conform to level Double-A of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. Our website follows those guidelines, with some limited exceptions:

  • Non-accessible content: Some document formats on such as PDF and MS Word may not be fully accessible. Where possible we aim to make documents accessible and/or provide a suitable HTML alternative.

Our website has been built using code compliant with W3C standards for HTML and CSS. Our site displays correctly in current browsers and using standards compliant with HTML/CSS code improves future browser compatibility. Our site is compliant for AA WCAG 2.1.
