Accessibility Policy

This accessibility statement applies to the Lancashire Police Museum website.

Ensuring everyone has access to the services we provide is important. To make us more accessible we continue to review how people access our online services and improve them where possible.

Accessibility on our website

We recognise that some internet users can find websites difficult to use due to the way they have been designed and so we have tried to ensure that our website is accessible in accordance with the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) guidelines. As an example, our website uses dynamically sized text allowing all browsers to resize the text to the users’ needs.

If you require further assistance in tailoring your browser to make it more accessible, there are a number of useful guides available online, which can be found by searching for ‘browser accessibility customisation’.

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.
