At Forestry England we want our website to work for everyone and we have been working hard to make it easier to use and easier to understand.

We aim to meet appropriate industry standards and guidelines, including the Double-A level of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for all users.


This site has been built using code compliant with W3C standards for HTML and CSS.

Our website has been tested with the JAWS screen reader and should function correctly on a range of mobile devices (Android and iOS) and in the following browsers:

  • Firefox
  • Chrome
  • Internet Explorer
  • Safari

Where areas of our website may not be reasonably compatible with some assistive technologies we aim to provide an alternative format for the content. For example, where we use interactive maps we have also provided content listings as an alternative.

Some areas of the website require you to have JavaScript turned on to work correctly.


Our video content is provided through YouTube.

Where possible we provide audio captions and transcripts for spoken content within our videos.

YouTube provides tools for managing closed captions and audio transcripts on your device.

We’re still working on

We do not yet provide audio descriptions for our video content.

We have not yet tested our website with speech input technologies.


We welcome feedback on all aspects of the website.

If you have any thoughts, comments or suggestions to help us improve please get in touch.
