Accessibility statement for the ‘Send money to someone in prison’ service

This accessibility statement applies to the service https://send-money-to-prisoner.service.gov.uk

This website is run by His Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service (HMPPS). 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 300% without the text spilling off the screen
  • navigate 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)

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

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

How accessible this website is

We know some parts of this website are not fully accessible as colour contrast on links, buttons and form inputs is not sufficient when in focus state.

Non-accessible content

The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

Links, buttons and form inputs do not meet colour contrast requirements when in focus state. This contravenes the WCAG 2.1 AA success criteria 1.4.3: Contrast (Minimum).

This is due to be resolved as part of an update of our service to use the GOV.UK Design System instead of the GOV.UK Front end elements and toolkit. This work is expected to be completed January 2021.

What we’re doing to improve accessibility

We are currently working on using the updated GOV.UK Design System to improve accessibility throughout the service, which should be completed in January 2021. Following the completion of this work, we will procure a complete service accessibility assessment, following which we will action any further accessibility issues (and update this accessibility statement where relevant).
