The RSPB is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of technology or ability.

We’re always working to increase the accessibility and usability of our website by following the available standards and guidelines.

This includes meeting level Double-A of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0. The guidelines explain how to make our web content more accessible for people with disabilities. Following these guidelines will help make our website more user friendly for all people.

While the RSPB works to keep to the accepted guidelines and standards for accessibility and usability, it’s not currently possible to do so in some of the older areas of our website, such as our events and blog pages.

We’re continually looking for ways to bring all areas of the site up to the same level of overall web accessibility. In the meantime, should you have any difficulty in accessing the RSPB website, please contact us at

Customise the site to your needs

While the RSPB website has been created to be as usable as possible, you’re likely to get the most accessible experience of the site by customising your computer to suit your individual needs. For example, you can get the site spoken to you, change its colour scheme or increase the size of its fonts.

If that sounds like it would be useful, visit BBC My Web, My Way to watch videos of how to customise the site to suit you, either using accessibility features on your computer or by installing assistive technologies.

Please see our individual reserve pages if you need information on accessibility at our reserves.
