The Clear English Standard for websites is shown here. Ideally you’ll put it on your home page, but it can go on any ‘accessibility’ page you have.

What’s the process?

Please ask us for an estimate of the cost using the form below. After the cost is agreed, we put every site through a three-stage process: editing, a pre-accreditation check and continual monitoring using spot-checks (in other words, regular maintenance). For more about these stages, click on ‘Process guide’.

What are the accreditation criteria?

Our criteria are simple: your website should be clear, easy to read and as free from grammatical and spelling errors as possible. Our team will focus on the purpose of the site, its content, its structure, and the language. For more details, please read the process guide and take a look here to find out what your customers will see when they click on our logo.
