This accessibility statement applies to https://sussexcamhs.nhs.uk/.
This website is run by Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website.
We have made our website as accessible and usable as possible. We’ve done this by adding an accessibility and language toolbar to our website as well as following the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1) produced by the World Wide Web Consortium, W3C, the web’s governing body.
We’ve aimed for AA compliance with WCAG, but we haven’t necessarily followed all the checkpoints as some are no longer relevant or have been demonstrated to get in the way of accessibility.
For example, that means you should be able to:
We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.
AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

We also offer additional accessibility features:

The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) is responsible for enforcing the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018 (the ‘accessibility regulations’).

Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust 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 partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances and exemptions listed below.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
Some images do not have a text alternative, so people using a screen reader cannot access the information. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 (non-text content). When we publish new content, we’ll make sure our use of images meets accessibility standards.
Some of our images and graphics contain text that is not readable by screen reader software.
We aim to have the above issues resolved by 2021.
PDFs and other documents
Some of our PDFs and Word documents are essential to providing our services. For example, we have PDFs with information on how users can access our services, and forms published as Word documents. By 2021, we plan to either fix these or replace them with accessible HTML pages.
The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services.
Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.
We will be a carrying out a full accessibility review in early 2021 with the aim to improve accessibility throughout 2021.
