To help us make the LUX Scotland website a positive place for everyone, we are using the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities, and user-friendly for everyone. The guidelines have three levels of accessibility (A, AA and AAA). We’ve chosen Level AA as the target for the LUX Scotland website. We monitor the website regularly to maintain this, but if you do find any problems, please get in touch.
