Accessibility statement

Wooldale Co-operative Society is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of technology or ability. We are actively working to increase the accessibility and usability of our website and in doing so adhere to many of the available standards and guidelines.

Web Accessibility Initiative

This website endeavours to conform to priority level 1 of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0.

These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. Conformance with these guidelines will help make the web more user friendly for all people.

W3C Standards

This site has been built using code compliant with W3C standards for XHTML and CSS.  The site displays correctly in current browsers and using standards compliant XHTML/CSS code means it will also display correctly on any future browsers.


Whilst Wooldale Co-operative Society strives to adhere to the accepted guidelines and standards for accessibility and usability, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website.

We are continually seeking solutions that will bring all areas of the site up to the same level of overall accessibility.  In the meantime should you experience any difficulty in accessing the Wooldale website, please contact us.
