This accessibility statement is for mylambeth.

This service is part of the wider Lambeth website. There’s a separate accessibility statement for the main Lambeth website.

This page only contains information about mylambeth, which is available at the following URL address: https://account.lambeth.gov.uk/.

We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website.

You should be able to:

  • zoom in up to 250% without the text spilling off the screen
  • use the most of the site in plain text format (without styling)

We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand. AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

We aim to make this site easy to understand. If you have difficulty understanding any of the content, please contact us at webteam@lambeth.gov.uk.

Technical information about this website’s accessibility

Lambeth Council is committed to making this service accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances listed below.

Non accessible content

The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

  • There’s no way to skip the repeated content in the page header, for example, a ‘skip to main content’ option. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.4.1 (bypass blocks).
  • Some of our forms are difficult to navigate using a keyboard. You can’t view the help text when it is included alongside some fields. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.1.1 (keyboard accessible).
  • Heading structure on all pages is not in logical order. For example, heading level 2 comes before heading level 1 because the mylambeth logo is styled using heading 2. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.4.6 (headings and labels).
  • You can’t navigate this website using just a keyboard. You can’t navigate beyond the first ‘question’ of each page. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.1.1 (keyboard accessible).

Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations

We don't embed videos or maps on any forms in mylambeth. If this changes we will ensure they are accessible or provide an accessible alternative.

How we tested this website

This website was last tested on 12 December 2019. The Lambeth web team carried out the testing, with the help of accessibility testing browser plugin Wave.

What we’re doing to improve accessibility

We are working with the supplier, IEG4, and following WCAG guidelines to work towards being fully compliant with WCAG 2.1 AA success criteria. We will do this by September 2020.
