Accessibility statement

DLF works hard to ensure that its websites are accessible to a wide audience. We work with users to test our designs, listen and respond to feedback and follow established standards for design and accessibility.

Help using computers, the web and assistive technology

If you need extra help in using computers, the web and assistive technology, we recommend BBC My Web My Way. This site has videos and information to help you use the accessibility features of your computer and how to make it easier to use the web.

Skipping to main content

If you’re using a screen reader or keyboard, use the ‘Skip to main content’ link at the top of every page to go straight to the content.

Making the text bigger

You may be able to change the text size in your browser.

Change the colours

We’ve tried to use colours that make webpages easy to read, but we know that some people have trouble with reading text on certain colours. You may be able to use your own colours with your browser.


To make things easier for screen reader users, images have descriptive alternative text. If the image is purely decorative or part of a link, the alt text is null.

Visual design

This site uses cascading style sheets for visual layout. If your browser or browsing device does not support style sheets, the content of each page is designed to be still readable.

If you find an accessibility problem on any page or would like to tell us anything that would make your experience of our site better, please email it@dlf.org.uk.


We are committed to producing websites and web resources that can be accessed by all of our visitors. We aim to adhere to the Worldwide Web Consortium’s (W3C) WCAG 2.0 accessibility guidelines to a minimum standard of AA compliance. Where possible and appropriate we aim to comply with AAA standards.

Continuous development

We know that not all parts of our website are perfect but we believe in continuous development.
