Preparation of this accessibility statement

This statement was originally prepared on 23rd December 2020, and reviewed and updated on the 2nd December 2021.

This website was last tested on 29th October 2021. The test was carried out by Test Partners Ltd.

We followed GOV.UK guidance on deciding how to check the This Girl Can website as follows:

  1. We used an automated website mapping tool to identify all the pages and documents on the website.
  2. We manually scoped the website beyond the login page.
  3. We identified the subdomains that are out of scope and removed all the pages from the page list.
  4. We removed all the documents from the list. It has not yet been decided if they will be fixed immediately, fixed on demand or if either the “legacy office documents” or “disproportionate burden” exemptions will be used.
  5. We grouped the remaining pages according to type, such as all the News pages, Blog pages, Case Studies etc.
  6. We manually assessed a number of pages from each group to determine the level of consistency within the group and the type of content on those pages.
  7. We manually assessed all the “unique” pages such as the home page and Login to determine the type of content on those pages.
  8. We identified a minimum representative subset of pages that contain examples of the most common layouts, components, and features, including:
    1. The header and footer.
    2. Important “unique pages”.
    3. Pages with text content and data tables.
    4. Pages with informational images, images of text and video content.
    5. Interactive elements such as forms and overlays.
  9. We conducted both manual and automated WCAG audits on the representative subset of pages.
  • We conducted multiple rounds of fixing and retesting, such that all WCAG non-conformances have been fixed.
