Accessibility

The Care Provider Alliance in association with KLUIO (external link) are committed to ensuring our online products and services are accessible to everyone, regardless of their ability.

We belive that providing an accessible website has a positive effect on general usability and that websites that are accessible and usable benefit everyone.

As part of our commitment to inclusive design we promise to regularly review, test and modify our website and any future releases of the site, for web accessibility issues.
