Wherever possible our website has been designed to meet WCAG 2.0 accessibility standards. We also have wheelchair access to our premises and disability parking available around the building.

Wherever possible Canberra Community Law strives to make our website compatible with Screen Readers on Microsoft Windows and the VoiceOver accessibility features on MacOS. This includes the use of descriptive alt text for non-decorative images, informative title tags for links & buttons and adherence to WCAG 2.0 guidelines on colour contrast, font size & more.

Canberra Community Law is committed to making sure access to accessible content is possible for all our clients and community workers. This is why for Microsoft Windows computers we recommend the free NVDA screen reader software. This screen reader is available in 43 languages.

Vision Australia also has a list of recommended screen reading software on their website that may be more suitable for business and high end users.

Easy English Content

the easy english logo

At Canberra Community Law it is important to us that all members of the community be able to access content in a format that suits them. This is why we have recently adopted the emerging Easy English standard. This format uses simple, short phrasing generous line spacing and informative graphics to help members of the community with intellectual disabilities get the help they need.

Currently our brochures are available in Easy English. We aim to convert more of our documents to the Easy English format in the future.

Disability parking and access

Canberra Community Law has an accessible entrance ramp and accessible meeting rooms available for our clients. When you arrive at out office please use the provided intercom to contact one of our staff who will come and assist you. There are accessible parking spaces available on McKay Garden & McKay Lane.
