Accessible documents at National Lottery Heritage Fund
This accessibility statement applies to the Resilient Heritage Strength Checker website, located at https://resilientheritagechecker.org.uk/.
We know some parts of this website are not fully accessible:
- there is insufficient colour contrast in multiple locations across the site
- some of our online forms are difficult to navigate using just a keyboard or screen reader
- tab order across the site is not always obvious or logical
- heading structures are not correct across many pages – so it can be difficult to determine page hierarchy
- some forms use reCAPTCHA elements that can be difficult to use for those with access needs
- for example, transparency documents. These types of documents are exempt from the regulations, so we do not currently have any plans to make them accessible.
But if you need to access information in one of these document types, you can contact us and ask for an alternative format.
