We’re continuously working to make Local Energy Scotland as accessible and usable as possible for all abilities and disabilities. This includes older audiences and those with visual, hearing, cognitive or motor impairments.

We try to make our site easy to use with assistive technologies by using:

  • easier-to-read colours
  • larger fonts
  • plain English
  • keyboard-only navigation
  • semantic HTML
  • basic screen reader testing
  • high colour contrast
  • additional hidden labels for screen readers


If you cannot access any part of this site or want to report an accessibility problem, please email us.

Enforcement procedure

The Equality and Human Rights Commission enforces the accessibility regulations (the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018).

If you’re not happy with how we respond to your feedback, contact the Equality Advisory and Support Service. They are an independent advice service. They will advise you on what to do next.
