We have designed the Invest in Worcestershire website www.investinworcestershire.com to be as accessible as possible. You can easily adjust the site in a number of ways to fit your needs.
The website is built using HTML5 and CSS, according to W3C (World Wide Web Consortium) standards. Where we do publish PDFs or other formats our policy is to make them as accessible as we can.
We try to use clear and simple language. We use alternative text for all our images and we have tested the colours we use in the design for contrast.
We developed the design and layout of the site so that it can be used by blind or partially sighted users. It is compatible with screen readers and can be navigated without the use of a mouse or keyboard.
Making our website accessible is the responsibility of each and every person involved in publishing web pages at Invest in Worcestershire.
The text across the site is resizable. You can also change the text size using your browser. Open http://www.bbc.co.uk/accessibility/guides/text_larger/browser/
The pages have been tested using various browsers to ensure that the information contained within the site is accessible to a range of different browsers.
We continue to make further improvements and enhancements to our accessibility features according to feedback.
Please let us know of any problems you may have encountered, or of any features that you have found particularly useful.
“Worcestershire came out as our top choice because of the skilled workforce available in the region and its central location to the UK’s motorway network. The endless support from the local partners solidified our decision to move to Worcestershire.”
“What’s important to us is that we’re close to an established automotive industry. This means supply chains are extremely efficient and we can find staff with the right skills and experience.”
“We chose Worcestershire for our European HQ and UK manufacturing facility because of its great location – it is close to motorways, airports and shipping ports.”
Endurance Wind Power
“Worcestershire is a second home to me. There is always a spring in my step as I cross the bridge over the River Severn at Worcester to arrive at New Road, the most beautiful cricket ground in the world. As Patron of Worcestershire County Cricket Club, I am impressed by the new hotel and stadium development which will be a huge asset for the club, city and county for many years to come.”
Former Governor of the Bank of England
“The most important part of our business is our people. We wanted to retain their experience, expertise and intellectual capacity and that’s why we chose to stay here in Malvern. Besides which, we have a good quality of life here. Worcestershire is a great place to live and consequently our staff retention levels are high.”
