Accessibility

Leicestershire County Council and Leicester City Council are committed to making their services accessible to all.

This website has been developed to serve the largest possible audience, using the broadest range of systems and to consider any needs that users with disabilities might have.

You can control the look and functionality of this website, depending on your computer or web browser’s settings.

Most devices will have accessibility settings you can change including; the way the screen looks (e.g. changing; fonts, sizes, colours, etc), the way the keyboard or mouse works and possibly speaking and listening to commands as well as a range of other features.

As several organisations have already produced lots of very good content about how to make websites more accessible, we have linked to these sites rather than duplicate this content. We are not able to give advice on all possible devices used, but we hope you find the links below useful. You should also consult your device’s documentation or the supplier’s website.
