Response to 'Consultation Accessibility of public sector websites and apps'

The Cabinet Office has conducted a consultation on new regulations for the public sector. The government will implement the EU Web Accessibility Directive in the form of the Public Sector Digital Accessibility Regulations (PDAR). Policy Connect submitted a response to the consultation, drawing on written input from associate member organisations. We have argued that the government should use the regulations to build on the Public Sector Equality Duty, but also learn the lessons from the week enforcement of that legislation. We have also met with the Cabinet Office to discuss our concerns and suggestions in person and are continuing a dialogue with the Department.
