Every person accessing our website should have equal access to information and services, regardless of their abilities. Action 1.9 of Kingston Council’s Disability Action Plan 2015-2019 is to ‘continue to improve the accessibility of Council’s communications and information infrastructure and publication materials’.
We are following the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 to help make our website user-friendly. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities and everyone in our community.
The content on this website is created by Council staff, community members, organisations and groups. There may be content provided that is not accessible to everyone such as PDFs, photos and other types of documents. Please let us know if you:
- come across content that is not accessible so that we can update it, or
