New accessibility regulations

New accessibility regulations are in force for public sector websites and apps.

What do the regulations mean?

New regulations already in force mean that public sector websites and mobile apps need to be accessible. This includes information, applications, services and content.

Lancaster University has to meet the requirements of these regulations. We all have a responsibility to make sure the University meets them, and we may be breaking the law if our websites or apps don’t.

Find out more, including what you need to do and when you need to do it.

If you don't want to do the online course, there’s information about face-to-face training options in the 'Help and Support' section below.
