This accessibility statement applies to the Cardiff and Vale Pension Fund website.

This website is run by Cardiff Council. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts using browser or device settings,
  • zoom in up to 400% without the text spilling off the screen,
  • navigate the website using a keyboard or speech recognition software, and
  • listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver).

We have also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.
