ACCESSIBILITY

This is an Accessibility Statement from London Pensions Fund Authority.

Measures to support accessibility

London Pensions Fund Authority takes the following measures to ensure the accessibility of the LPFA website:

Conformance status

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) defines requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA. The LPFA website is fully compliant with WCAG 2.0 level AA.

Additional accessibility considerations

The website build and design began under WCAG 2.0 so our immediate aim is Level AA conformance under WCAG 2.0. On launch, we will undertake further development to ensure that it meets, as far as possible, Level AA under WCAG 2.1 (published in June 2021).

Feedback

We welcome your feedback on the accessibility of the LPFA website. Please let us know if you encounter accessibility barriers on the LPFA website:

We try to respond to feedback within five working days.

Compatibility with browsers and assistive technology

The LPFA website is designed to be compatible with the following assistive technologies:

Limitations and alternatives

Despite our best efforts to ensure accessibility of the LPFA website, there may be some limitations. Below is a description of known limitations, and potential solutions. Please contact us if you observe an issue not listed below.

  1. The BrowseAloud/ReachDeck tool bar requires a mouse and some vision to use, so may be inaccessible to some groups with motor and vision issues. We will investigate alternative assistive technologies on expiration of the BrowseAloud/ReachDeck contract.
  2. Animations. There are two animations on YouTube that our website links to. Subtitles were not included at the time of production so are not fully accessible. We will address this by using YouTube’s editing function to add subtitles to the videos.

Assessment approach

London Pensions Fund Authority assessed the accessibility of the LPFA website by the following approaches:

Formal complaints

All complaints and queries should be sent to communications@lpfa.org.uk. If the issues do not meet our WCAG 2.0 Level AA – our desired standard – the issue will be assessed and remedied unless the cost of immediate action is prohibitive. In those cases, the issue will be considered for resolution as part of the websites ongoing schedule of development. LPFA will advise the user raising the issue of our approach.
