Accessibility guidelines

These accessibility guidelines will ensure that we build digital services and content that everyone can use without needing to adapt them, while supporting those who do need to adapt things.

They have been created for colleagues and partners who create and manage digital services and content on the web including:

  • Renfrewshire schools and nurseries
  • HSCP, OneRen and other partners
  • local authorities in the UK
  • local businesses, communities, voluntary or charity organisations.

You can help us improve these guidelines by emailing feedback to web@renfrewshire.gov.uk
