Accessibility

This Girl Can is a Sport England campaign designed to encourage all women and girls to get more active and having fun doing it.

So it important to us that disabled people can use our digital services to join the campaign, take part in the conversation and find out when and where they can get active.

Sport England aims for a consistently high level of usability for visitors to all of our websites and digital channels following best-practice accessibility guidelines. And we regularly check that our sites remain accessible as they grow and new content is added.

This includes ensuring that

  • Content is written and structured using accessible language
  • Websites are designed in a way that makes it easier for people with visual impairments to adjust colour contrasts, increase font size, use screen readers and other tools that help them access the site
  • Provide a sub-titled option for all films
  • Providing content in alternative formats and languages as and when required.

Many web browsers contain great tools for adjusting sites and help make them more accessible. The BBC has a great accessibility help site, called My Web My Way, which can advise you on how to do this.

If you have any questions or comments about the accessibility of this or any other Sport England website; or wish to ask for content to be translated, please email thisgirlcan@sportengland.org
