This accessibility statement applies to letsgosouthall.org.uk
This website is run by Ealing Council on behalf of Let’s Go Southall. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that 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’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand. AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

Ealing Council is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances and exemptions listed below.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations
Some features of the website are dependent upon the use of WordPress plug-ins provided by third parties. Because third-party applications are out of our control, they may not conform to the required levels of accessibility. Third-party plug-ins used include:
• Google Translate
• WP Slick Slider and Image Carousel
Several features used within the website rely on the use of third-party plug-ins that do not fully conform to the required levels of accessibility.
We’ve assessed the cost of fixing the issues regarding these particular features. We believe that doing so now would be a disproportionate burden within the meaning of the accessibility regulations. We will make another assessment when the supplier contract is up for renewal, likely to be in 2022
Some prerecorded videos published before 23 September 2020 do not include captions. This doesn’t meet WCAG 2.1 success criteria 1.2.2 Captions (Prerecorded). We may not add captions to these videos because prerecorded video published before 23 September 2020 is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations.
Some prerecorded videos published before 23 September 2020 may require, but don’t include, audio description. This doesn’t meet WCAG 2.1 success criteria 1.2.5 Audio Description (Prerecorded). We may not add audio description to these videos because prerecorded video published before 23 September 2020 is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations.
Any prerecorded video content we publish after 23 September 2020 will meet accessibility standards.
