Accessibility Statement

The Resolution Foundation is an independent charitable think-tank. The objects of the charity are primarily to promote research and the education of the public into the effect of economic, social and financial factors on living standards for those on low-to-middle incomes. We are committed to increasing access to both the content of our work and our employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities. The statement below details some of the action we take to meet this commitment.

Measures to support accessibility

Measures taken by the Resolution Foundation to ensure accessibility include the following:

  • Prioritising accessibility throughout our internal policies
  • Integrating accessibility into our recruitment practices
  • Devising and assigning clear accessibility goals and responsibilities
  • Employing formal accessibility quality assurance measures.

Accessibility of

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) defines requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA. Resolution Foundation is partially conformant with WCAG 2.1 Level A. Partially conformant means that some parts of the content do not fully conform to the accessibility standard. Although our goal is WCAG 2.1 Level A conformance, we have also applied some Level AA Success Criteria, including captions on our live stream videos and ensuring we have no images of text containing any more than incidental content.

Known limitations for include:

  1. We are working towards ensuring that every website action can be performed using only a keyboard.
  2. We are working towards ensuring all our content is compatible with assistive technology.

Where events are held at external venues, accessibility is prioritised as a key requirement.

We welcome applications and expressions of interest from all candidates with disabilities and are happy to make reasonable adjustments in advance.  We offer pre-application chats for candidates with disabilities so they can assess the demands of the job and ensure the working environment is suitable for them. For some roles, we also offer the option to opt into a guaranteed interview scheme.
