Accessibility standards

We want everyone who visits the Camden Federation of Private Tenants website to feel welcome and find the experience rewarding.

What are we doing?

To help us make the Community Association of West Hampstead website a positive place for everyone, we’ve been using the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities, and user friendly for everyone. The guidelines have three levels of accessibility (A, AA and AAA). We’ve chosen Level AA as the target for the Community Association of West Hampstead website.

How are we doing?

We’re not quite there yet, but we are working towards achieving our goal of Level AA accessibility and we realise there are some areas that still need improving.
Currently our video presentations do not meet Level AA because they don’t have either a text version or audio description.
