At East Thames our aim is to make our website as accessible as possible to the widest range of visitors and customers. Communicating as effectively as possible is paramount for us.

This means considering the specific needs of those with visual or physical impairments, learning difficulties and other forms of disability. In addition it means having an understanding of different browser technologies.

We support the principles of the Disability Discrimination Act (1995) and are committed to recognising and responding to the needs of all disabled people.
