Using this website

East Sussex County Council run this website. We aim to make it as easy to use as possible. You should be able to:

  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts
  • zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
  • navigate most of the website using only a keyboard
  • listen to our website using a screen reader.

Go to AbilityNet to find out how to make these changes.

All non-text content has a text alternative.


We use plain English to make the text easy to read. We aim to create content for a reading age of 11. We regularly run readability audits on our content and make continual improvements. As of 22 September 2020, our content meets AA accessibility standards.

Sign language readers can visit our BSL introduction to the website.

If you would like to read the website in another language use Google Translate.
