Accessibility Statement for the West Yorkshire Casualty Prevention Partnership website
This accessibility statement applies to this website, www.safetycameraswestyorkshire.co.uk and any of the content contained within this site/domain.
We want everyone to be able to use our website, in particular, we recognise the need to take reasonable steps to enable access to our website for the communities we serve.
This means you should be able to:
- change colours, contrast levels and fonts
- zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
- navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
- navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
- listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)
We also try to make the website text as clear and as easy as possible to understand.
Customising your experience
You might find our website easier to use if you change some of the settings on your device or browser to suit your individual needs. For example it may assist you if you change the website’s colours, increase the text size or have the site spoken aloud.
For more help customising your experience using accessibility features already on your device or by installing extra assistive technologies, read AbilityNet’s My Computer My Way guide.
Technical information about this website’s accessibility
This website was designed, built and first published in 2019 and was designed by our external suppliers to take into account the best practice standards at the time, including WCAG 2.0 and 2.1, ARIA standards (Accessible Rich Internet Applications) and the GOV.UK Design System.
West Yorkshire Casualty Prevention Partnership aims to improve this website by making it as accessible as is reasonably possible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
This website is therefore partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances listed below.
How this website has been tested for accessibility
We test this website using the following methods :

The website was last tested in September 2020. The test was carried out by the West Yorkshire Police Digital Development Team.
The team manually tested a number of pages in order to cover the different content types / page layouts used within the website.

Plans to fix accessibility issues
The West Yorkshire Casualty Prevention Partnership rely on support offered by the Digital Development Team at West Yorkshire Police. The West Yorkshire Police Digital Development Team are responsible for managing the West Yorkshire Police website and Content Management System - alongside supporting the Force's website's content authors, along with other duties.
The auditing of the pages of this site is a continual ongoing process by the West Yorkshire Casualty Prevention Partnership and conjunction with the support of the West Yorkshire Police Digital Development Team, and issues identified by both the automated tests, listed above, alongside the manual content checks, will be addressed as resources / funding allows.
The West Yorkshire Casualty Prevention Partnership is keen for the site to be as accessible as possible, however, resources for the development of the site, and any paid-for fixes that may be required by external suppliers, may be limited / delayed due to restricted funding for website development work.
Any changes / fixes that can be done manually, without the need for external suppliers, or funding, will be done so as staffing and resources allow, allowing for any prior operational policing commitments.
This section documents when we have been able to resolve known issues with the website :
22nd December 2020
Missing 'form control labels' on the following text entry boxes / form fields :
- The homepage 'Get started' search field
- The site-wide top menu drop-down search tool
The above issues were resolved and a system update released on Wednesday 23rd December 2020. We re-tested the sections of the site, listed above, with the Wave Accessibility tool, and the form search field errors previously identified are no longer flagged.
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’).
