This accessibility statement applies to the South Tyneside Safeguarding Adults Board Policies, Procedures & Practice Resource website.
This website is run by Policy Partners Project. 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 and font sizes via our accessibility stylesheets
- zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
- view all video content with subtitles on by default
- 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.

Technical information about this website’s accessibility
Policy Partners Project 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 compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.2 AA standard, with non-compliances and exemptions listed below.
Disproportionate burden (Interactive tools and transactions)
Some of our interactive elements supplied by 3rd party developers/features, such as forms or recaptcha boxes, may be more difficult to navigate using a keyboard. For example, because some form controls are missing a ‘label’ tag.
Where we rely on 3rd party developers for key features we will work alongside them to develop and install any accessibility improvements that can be made to those features.
PDFs, images and other documents
Some of our content is supported by, or links out to, PDFs, images and Word documents supplied by other sources. We will aim, where possible, to ensure any linked documents or embedded images (created post-September 2018) in our control will be accessible.
