Website Accessibility

The Sports Grounds Safety Authority is committed to ensuring that the tools and resources available on this website can be accessed by everybody.

We strive to adhere to the W3 Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.  Changes to improve accessibility are ongoing, but if you come across a page you find difficult to use, please let us know.

We are always keen to hear new ways in which we can improve our service and accessibility. If you are having difficulties using this website, please contact us.


External website links on the site will open a new browser window and most links have title attributes, which describe the link in greater detail. In the majority of cases the text of the link already fully describes the target. Wherever possible, links are written to make sense out of context.


Most documents on this website are PDFs (portable document format). The advantage of a PDF is that it will always be presented consistently. You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader (or similar) to open PDF files, and this can be downloaded for free. Adobe has recently updated its free reader to include screen reading functionality.

Adobe also has a free online conversion tool for PDFs so people who have problems reading PDFs can convert them so that they appear as normal web pages or plain text.
