This is an accessibility statement from Care By Us Limited and covers the following digital services:

  • The Care By Us Website
  • The Care By Us Employee Intranet (Portal)
  • The Care By Us Carer Mobile App

Conformance status

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) defines requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA. The Care By Us digital services are partially conformant with WCAG 2.1 level AA. Partially conformant means that some parts of the content do not fully conform to the accessibility standard.

Improvement plan

We are currently working with our development teams to ensure all of our digital services are fully compliant with WCAG 2.1 level AA. We aim to be fully compliant in Q3 2022.

Ensuring ongoing conformance

To ensure ongoing conformance, we will be using a variety of methods, including the follow:

  • Putting policies in place to ensure new content is accessible from the moment of publishing
  • Offering advice to colleagues on how to ensure accessibility in the digital content they create
  • Using automated tools to assess our services and report back to us any areas for improvement
