Accessibility Roadmap for Staff and Student websites using the Terminalfour platform

Home / Accessibility / Internal websites / Roadmap

Accessibility roadmap for Staff and Student websites using the Terminalfour platform.

The University of Sunderland runs a wide variety of websites and it is important to us that our websites and services are as widely accessible as possible.

This roadmap describes our approach to this work, and is complementary to our Accessibility Statement for Staff and Student websites using the Terminalfour platform.
