This accessibility statement applies to Violence Against Women and Girls – Enough Campaign at URL: enough.campaign.gov.uk
This website is run by the Home Office. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:
• change colours, contrast levels and fonts
• zoom in up to 400% without the text spilling off the screen
• navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
• navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
• listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)
• read most of the website on devices without a screen, like a braille computer
There are many options for you to customise your web browser and device that could help you to navigate this and other websites more easily. If you have a disability, AbilityNet has helpful advice on how to make your device easier to use.

Technical information about this website’s accessibility
HM Government is committed to making this website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances listed below.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons (we plan to address the below issues by end April 2022):
Non-compliance with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 A and AA
- Some lists were not marked up semantically. Assistive technology users will find it difficult to understand the page and its grouped content. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.3.1 (Info and Relationships).
- Error messages are not automatically announced to screen readers. This makes it difficult for users to correct the issue and continue moving through the process. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.3 (Status Messages).
- Visible focus indicators are missing from the cookie banner, the logo and radio buttons on Know the Facts Quiz. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.4.7 (Focus Visible).
- Multiple links with the same link text exist on the same page making it difficult to determined which link is associated with which piece of content. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.4.4 (Link Purpose in context).
- Some elements on the page have been marked up with an incorrect button role. This makes it difficult for assistive technology users to understand how to interact with custom components like accordions. This fails WCAG success criterion 4.1.2 (Name, Role, Value).
- Some HTML was not well formed and contained issues that may impact assistive technologies. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.1 (Parsing).
- The keyboard focus order doesn’t follow accordingly to the displayed content on the Know the Facts Quiz page. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.4.3 (Focus Order).
- Accordions that act like a button but haven’t been correctly marked up. This fails WCAG success criterion 4.1.2 (Name, Role, Value).
- Users of assistive technology are not automatically made aware of updated search results. This fails WCAG success criterion 4.1.2 (Name, Role, Value).
- The quick exit button doesn’t have a matching accessible label. This makes it difficult for users relying on voice recognition software to navigate through pages. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.5.3 (Label in Name).
- Headings are used to create a visual structure, but some heading levels are skipped. This means screen reader users can’t identify the relationship of sections of information. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.3.1 (Info and Relationships).
- Images on some pages do not always have suitable image descriptions. Users of assistive technologies may rely on these descriptions to understand content. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 (Non-text Content).
Contrast and colour
- Some text has poor colour contrast. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.4.3 (Contrast Minimum).
- When some elements receive focus, a change of colour occurs to indicate the focus state. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.4.1 (Use of Colour).
What we’re doing to improve accessibility
We plan to address the above issues by May 2022.
