Children with Cancer UK is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience.

We actively work to ensure that this website is accessible and usable by people of all abilities.

How to get the most accessible experience from this website

Our website can be viewed on a range of different screen sizes and the size of text can be changed to suit different people. We have also included a search facility and site map to help people find information more easily.

Changing Settings

Examples include getting the site spoken to them; changing its colour-scheme; or increasing the size of its fonts. Using your web browser, you can change the size of text on this website. You can also make other helpful changes in your browser, as well as within your computer generally. To find out how to make the web easier to use visit My Web My Way

Limitations of this site’s accessibility

While we have worked hard to ensure this site’s accessibility, you may find some limitations. Content across the site has been written and formatted to make it as accessible as possible. This includes:
  • Using semantic headings which are descriptive and used to highlight sections of text
  • Clear and easy to understand language
  • Meaningful text used for all links
  • Form labelling for screen readers
  • Descriptive alternative text for images
Work on accessibility is ongoing as we aim to conform to level ‘A’ and ‘AA’ of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 These guidelines are the internationally recognised benchmark for building accessible websites. The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines explain how to make websites more accessible for people with disabilities. Conformity to these guidelines also makes websites more user friendly for all people.
