Reporting accessibility problems with this website

We are currently working to replace this website with a new, fully accessible, website. However, if you find any problems not listed on this page that you think we may need to be aware of, please contact us at mdp-corpcomms-group@mod.gov.uk.

Enforcement procedure

If you contact is with a complaint and you’re not happy with our response, contact the Equality Advisory & Support Service(EASS).

The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) is responsible for enforcing the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018 (the ‘accessibility regulations’).

Technical information about this website’s accessibility The Ministry of Defence Police is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

Compliance status

This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard.

Non-accessible content

The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

Some images do not have a text alternative, so people using a screen reader cannot access the information. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 (non-text content).

If we publish new content, we'll make sure our use of images meets accessibility standards.

Disproportionate burden

It is considered a disproportionate burden, with the resources that we have available, to rectify all accessibility issues with the current website because, in addition to accessibility issues, the current website is outdated and needs to be rebuilt on a modern Content Management System to enable more effective and efficient content management.

Work is now underway to replace the existing website with a fully accessible website, that is compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard no later than 31 March 2021.

It is not expected that any further campaigns for new recruits will be launched until the new year, so the number of people using the website will not be at an increased level during the coming months.

Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations PDFs and other documents

Some of our PDFs and Word documents are essential to providing our recruitment process. For example, we have interactive PDF application forms. By 23 September 2020, we plan to ensure that all interactive PDF application forms available on the website are as accessible as possible.

The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services. For example, we do not plan to fix recruitment process guidance documents.

Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.
