Accessibility on our website

This website is run by children’s charity, The Children’s Family Trust. We want as many people as possible to be able to use our website and have added a new accessibility toolbar to our web pages to try and make our website more inclusive.

Information about the ‘Recite Me’ web accessibility and language toolbar

Recite Me is an innovative cloud-based software that lets visitors to our website view and use it in the way that works best for them.

The web accessibility and language toolbar helps the one in five people in the UK who have a disability, including those with common conditions like sight loss and dyslexia, to access this website in the way that suits them best.

It also meets the needs of the one in ten people in the UK who don’t speak English as their first language, by being able to translate our web content into over 100 different languages.

How do I access the Recite Me toolbar?

You can open the Recite Me web accessibility and language toolbar by clicking on the Button labelled ‘Accessibility and Language Support’ 

This Button labelled ‘Accessibility and Language Support’ now appears Top centre on every page of our website.

After you click on the Button labelled ‘Accessibility and Language Support’  the Recite Me toolbar opens and displays a range of different options for customising how the website looks and how you can access the content.

How does Recite Me help me access this website?

Recite Me helps people to access our website to do the things they need to do, like find information about how to access our service by making complaints, access publications and read news.
