Website accessibility

We want Wellcome to be accessible for everyone, and that includes our website.

We’re committed to making sure everyone can access and use our website easily, whatever their device.

We aim to meet level AA of the World Wide Web Consortium (WC3) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1, where possible. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities.
