We have made every effort to make the Disasters Emergency Committee  website easy to use and accessible to everyone. Pages on this website conform to the Worldwide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility guidelines “AA” standard as default and many/most to “AAA” standard.

Website accessibility in the UK is generally measured against guidelines and standards set by the Web Accessibility initiative, where:

  • A is the most basic standard. Websites must comply with all WAI priority one checkpoints to achieve this standard
  • AA is a higher standard requiring compliance with all WAI priority one and two checkpoints
  • AAA is the highest standard, demanding compliance with all priority one, two and three WAI checkpoints. Making our website fully accessible is an ongoing process and we are committed to offer a user-friendly experience.

The DEC website has been designed to comply with the WAI's AA standard. If you think we have failed to achieve this please tell us why and we will do what we can to rectify the situation. If you experience any problems or have any feedback, please email us at describing in full the nature of the issue and what internet browser you're using.
