We are committed to making sure that our website is as accessible as it can be.

We have made the site as usable as we can, but if there may be a way to improve your experience if you have specific needs. For example, you can change the colours, font, and text size to suit you.

For help customising your experience using accessibility features already on your computer, or by installing extra assistive technologies, try these sites:

We last undertook a major transformation of our website in 2018.

As part of this, we looked into the following areas:

  • Whether or not to have an audio reader (research indicated most users with this need would have existing software on their computers).
  • Whether or not to have a function where people could increase or decrease font/content size (again, our findings at the time were that people would likely have this software, if needed).
  • Using links and ensuring the website was signposted as clearly as possible throughout and across different platforms. (This was taken forward to ensure a seamless user journey for all visitors and will be reviewed and audited periodically.)
  • Using a combination of different types of content (done).
  • Ensuring we used non-technical language/Plain English across the site (done and continually under review).
  • Adding reading times to article (explored for case studies).
  • Ability read on mobile and tablets (full desktop and mobile functionality were built into the new site as standard).
  • Ability to change from full content to readability mode in mobile (done).
  • Colour use (we insisted on this as part of the design process and will review it periodically).


We aim to test the website for accessibility every 12 – 18 months. The next audit will be in early 2020.

We welcome feedback about our website and if you have any comments or suggestions, please email trustee@womanstrust.org.uk
