This website is run by Nuffield Family Justice Observatory and we are committed to making it as accessible as possible.

For example, that means you should be able to:

  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts
  • zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard

We have also made the website text as clear as we can. AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

How accessible is this website?

Our website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard. There are some parts of the website that are not fully accessible:

  • The text within tables will not reflow in a single column when you change the size of the browser window.
  • We have not added autocomplete tokens to forms.
  • Some images do not have a text alternative.

PDFs and other documents

Some of our older PDFs and Word documents may not be structured so they’re accessible to a screen reader.

Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.

What to do if you cannot access parts of this website

If you need information on this website in a different format such as accessible PDF, large print, easy read or audio recording please email

We will consider your request and get back to you as soon as possible.
