BHW Solicitors strive to make our services accessible to all of our clients.
We want everyone who interacts with BHW Solicitors, either in person or online, to feel welcome.
What are we doing?
Our premises are disability-friendly and our website has been designed to be easily navigable for all visitors. To help us make the BHW Solicitors website a positive place for everyone, we’ve been using the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities, and user-friendly for everyone.
Each of our office premises has:
- Disabled car parking
- Wheelchair access
- Accessible toilets
- Ground floor meeting rooms
Our aim is to ensure that our services and the information that we provide is not only accessible but is also communicated in a manner that is appropriate for each client. We will therefore provide:
- Information in alternative formats if requested, such as large print, braille or audio tape
- Access to sign language interpreters
- Access to translation services
- Audio and video conferencing (on request)
We are committed to ensuring that our website meets high standards of accessibility and usability.
