Website accessibility statement

Genetic Alliance UK’s purpose is to work together to improve the lives of 3.5 million people in the UK living with lifelong and complex genetic and rare conditions.

We want to ensure that the information on our site is accessible for everyone, including people who may have impaired vision, motor difficulties, learning difficulties, and/or impaired hearing.

Accessibility on the website now

We have made the site as usable as we can, but you might want to change the settings on your computer to suit your individual needs. For example, you may wish to:

  • change the website’s colours
  • increase the text size
  • have the site spoken out loud.

You can also access additional advice on customising your experience from AbilityNet’s My Computer, My Way or from the Web Accessibility Initiative.

As a small charity we do not routinely translate our materials into other languages.  However if you need a specific piece of information in a language other than English, please email [email protected] and we will try to help.

Improving the website for the future

Genetic Alliance UK has a small team of staff who are passionate about supporting people living with genetic and rare conditions. Our small size and limited resources mean that we may not get everything right at first, but we are committed to continually learning and improving the accessibility of our website over time. 

If you find anything on the website difficult, please let us know so that we can try to improve it. Email [email protected] and tell us:

  • the web address or title of the page where you found a problem
  • what the problem is
  • what mobile phone, computer and software you use to access the website.

Thank you for sharing constructive feedback on the accessibility or usability of our site. Your feedback will help us understand what we can do better and improve the accessibility of our website over time.
