Accessibility

We're committed to providing a website that is accessible and easy to use for the widest range of visitors possible.

Following W3C standards

We believe that this is an ongoing process and are constantly seeking to improve.Our website has been designed to adhere to best practice by following W3C standards.Pages have been built to comply with a minimum standard of WCAG 2.0 single ‘A’ guidelines.

Wherever possible we aim to extend this to ‘AA’ and ‘AAA’ compliance.There are a number of steps we have taken to address accessibility needs that are detailed below:

Layout

The site uses Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to control all presentation and layout so that content is well structured and easily accessible via assistive devices.

Fonts

Text size can be increased or decreased in your browser by following these steps:

Images

Where possible, all images used for non aesthetic reasons have descriptive alternative text.

Content

Content across the site has been written and formatted to make it as accessible as possible. This includes:

Colour contrast

Wherever possible we have designed pages and chosen colours to be accessible to colour-blind users. Where contrast is limited, we are working towards a solution by reviewing our current colour palette.

Navigation aids

All pages across the site include a link to the homepage and, where possible, we have a consistent global navigation. Breadcrumb trails are also used in most sections which include navigation aids in the left-hand column.

Rich media content

We are using YouTube to host our videos, descriptions and captioning. These captions can be accessed by clicking the ‘CC’ button within the video player.

There are a number of PDF documents available for download across the site. You can find out more about how to configure the free Adobe Reader software to obtain greater access to PDF files by visiting the Adobe site. Download Adobe Reader for free

Access keys

In order to avoid any conflict with personal access keys you may have set up on your computer, we have chosen not to install bespoke access keys on this site. Efforts have been made to ensure the site is as easy to navigate as possible.

Feedback

We are continually seeking to make improvements to the site and welcome any comments, suggestions or feedback. If you are using adaptive technology and are having problems accessing information on the site, please email webeditor@policecare.org.uk with details of the problem you encountered and the technology you are using.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Police Care UK to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Police Care UK we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Police Care UK to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Police Care UK will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Police Care UK receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
