Hampshire County Council is committed to making its website as accessible as possible to benefit all visitors.
Hantsweb aims to reach conformance level AA from the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG).
To ensure that meet our aim of an accessible website we have a clear set of web publishing standards, and an Access for all policy.
We review the site regularly and amend pages that may cause problems for people with disabilities.
If you find that you can not access any of our content, please let us know. We will make every reasonable effort to either remove the barrier or provide the information in a format that you find acceptable.
