They offer guidance on:

- increasing the size of the text in your web browser
- changing text and background colours
- how to magnify your screen

Google Translate can provide translations of each page of our site into a range of languages.
Accessible Information Standard (Adult Social Care)
As a publicly-funded Adult Care provider (like most local authorities), we were legally required to implement the new Accessible Information Standard in July 2016. The standard aims to make care information easier to access and understand for disabled people and their carers.
As part of this, we make sure that each person receives:
- Accessible Information
- Communication Support
This means that when you get in touch with us to talk about your care needs, we'll ask you if you need any help to understand or access the information we give you.
To discuss your needs beforehand, contact Adult Social Care.
If none of the above helps, or if you'd like to suggest any changes, complete our feedback form.
Give us as much detail as possible, including:
- details about the issue you were having, including any terms, phrases or information that's unclear
- the web address of the page you are having trouble with
- the device you are using to access the site, for example, a phone, a laptop or a tablet
- the name of the browser you are using
If you give us your name and address, we'll be able to get back in touch to help if necessary - we won't use your details for anything else.
