Independent review

We're currently working with the Royal National Institute of Blind People to make sure the site meets Level AA of WCAG2.

The Society of IT Managers (Socitm) review council websites as part of their annual Better Connected programme, this includes testing by the Digital Accessibility Centre.  We passed Stage 1 of the accessibility testing for 2016/17 which involved automated testing on the homepage. Socitm will now manually test a selection of other pages.
