At SDSS we follow the Social Model of disability which means that we are committed to addressing barriers to make sure that everyone can access the information that they need.

The website does not have a separate accessibility statement, this is because we have designed this site to be as accessible and usable as possible for every user. When developing this site we consulted with developers with accessibility credentials and site testing was carried out with our members and a range of partners, including to check compatibility with screen reading technology.

We will continue to develop our site with accessibility as our main priority.
