Website Accessibility

Here at LOOK we want your on-line experience to be as easy as possible. That’s why we have tried to design this web site to assist some of the accessibility problems you may have.

As a UK based web site and charity organisation helping the visually impaired we wanted to ensure we are addressing our responsibility under the Disabilities Discrimination Act. Below helps explain some of these design features.
