Scope’s commitment to website accessibility 

We are committed to making the Scope Panel site as accessible as possible, it is tested for accessibility every 12 months. We want everyone to be able to us use it, no matter what their impairments and which technologies they use. This is part of our Everyday Equality strategy

We have created the site taking best-practice web accessibility guidelines into account, including WCAG 2.1 and  BS 8878

This accessibility statement was last updated in September 2020 and follows the advice on accessibility statements in  British Standard BS 8878

Adapting your experience to your needs 

We have made the site as usable as we can, but you might have a better experience if you change the settings on your computer to suit your individual needs. 

For example, you might change the site’s colours, increase the text size, or have the site spoken aloud.
