Our Accessibility Guidelines

Colt Digital Accessibility Guidance


Keri Gilder

CEO, Colt

"We believe that enabling and empowering our people, and the partners we work with, is vital - and that means everyone, regardless of whether someone has disabilities or a long-term condition and regardless of whether this is visible or invisible - every individual should find it easy to connect and contribute."

1. Delivering the Colt accessibility roadmap

To deliver the ambition outlined in the Colt Accessibility Roadmap, we need the right tools, skills and ways of working in place to empower our teams. This knowledge base will empower our project, technical and content producing teams, to be more inclusive in everything they do, delivering digital products and services for both employees and customers.

The Colt Accessibility Guides have been designed to make delivery of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) more achievable. This site also provides our project managers and product managers with guidance on how to embed accessibility end to end.

These guidelines are aligned with the values outlined in Colt's Diversity, Equity and Inclusion strategy, and are to be used in conjunction with Colt's Brand Guidelines and Web Guidelines.
