Accessibility Statement

We want everyone who visits the Bluehouse Group website to feel welcome and find the experience rewarding.

What are we doing?

To help us make the Bluehouse Group website a positive place for everyone, we've been using the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities, and more 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 Bluehouse Group website.

How are we doing?

We've worked hard on the Bluehouse Group website and believe we've achieved our goal of Level AA accessibility. We monitor the website regularly to maintain this, but if you do find any problems, please get in touch.
