New NALC Publication
NALC has published a new guide on website accessibility and publishing guidelines.
The website accessibility guide aims to help local parish and town councils ensure their websites meet the needs of all users — especially those with disabilities or impairments that use assistive technology. The guide explains what website accessibility is, how it affects local councils, the requirements, and compliance. It details what a council must publish under the Transparency Code 2015, the costs of running a website, where to get help, what ongoing checks are needed, and discusses the future of website accessibility. The guide also contains a step-by-step guide and a range of resources and can also aid those who write and create content for websites and use it as guidance to give to their website designers, who may not be aware that local government websites need to comply with the Transparency Code.
