The Association for Perioperative Practice Accessibility Statement

Reviewed 28 March 2024

AFPP is committed to providing accessible services for everyone regardless of their ability. We recognise that our website is one of our main communication tools for connecting members and providing information about the Organisation, and we are committed to ensuring that everyone can use it.

Our Commitment

New media technologies are always developing and changing at a fast pace, however we are committed to the following broad principles when developing our website:

  • AFPP’s websites should comply with accessibility standards in commissioning, editorial, design and coding. These standards include the W3C Web Accessibility Initiative.
  • AfPP’s website is designed for use with assistive technologies: our online media work will work well with technologies such as software page readers.


 The accessibility guidelines we are committed to following include: 

  • Using an easy-to-read web font type.
  • Ability for users to control text sizes via browser.
  • Ensuring suitable foreground and background colour contrast on text.
  • Using clear and simple grammar.
  • Providing meaningful alternative text equivalents for pictures.
  • Providing a straightforward and consistent site navigation.
  • Ensuring the target of each link is clearly defined.
  • Providing a sitemap.
  • Using appropriate structural mark-up to maximise browser support.
  • Ensuring all content and functionality is available to users without content style sheet (CSS), image and script support.
