Technical information about this application's accessibility

We are committed to making our applications accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

This application is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 and AA standard.

How we tested this application

We tested the application with users before launching a public beta version.

During development, only components from the GOV.UK Design System were used which have been tested against WCAG 2.1 with any known accessibility issues noted below.

We have used the aXe accessibility testing toolkit to identify any accessibility issues - see

How accessible is this application?

We know some parts of the application are not fully accessible:

The web application has conditionally revealing checkboxes. Users are not always notified when conditionally revealed checkboxes are shown or hidden. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.2 Name, Role, Value.

What we're doing to improve accessibility

A test of every page against the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 level A and level AA will be performed within 6-months and this accessibility statement updated. We will use the Website Accessibility Conformance Evaluation Methodology (WCAG-EM) approach to conduct the test.
