This website is run by Scottish Enterprise. We want to make our services accessible to everyone who could benefit from them, irrespective of any disability they may have.
Scottish Enterprise are committed to making this website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018. This website is compliant with the Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard.
This statement was prepared on 21 December 2020.
How we approach accessibility
We regularly test our websites with disabled users to identify and address any issues. We have an in-house accessibility lab and testing team, who test new features and changes to the site for accessibility issues. This website was last tested in November 2020. The test was carried out by our internal test team.
As well as aiming to build our website in a way that’s easy for all users to use and navigate, we’re also working towards making the language we use as simple as possible to understand by using plain English principles.
AbilityNeta has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.
