Welcome to the website of Dawlish Community Trust (DCT)
Dawlish Community Trust is committed to producing a website that is accessible to all users regardless of the media used for viewing the pages or any physical impairment experienced by the user. In particular, we have designed the website so that it:
As part of our commitment to accessibility, all pages of this website have been tested individually for compliance against the measures specified by the WAI. Pages will also be tested every time they are modified.
We have endeavoured to achieve Triple-A (AAA) accessibility as measured against version 1.0 of the WCAG. Where we are not able to implement a page up to this standard then this will be displayed on the page itself. We are aware however, that a number of the checkpoints of the WCAG are subjective - and although we consider that we have met them, there may be instances where interpretation may vary.
If you have any problems accessing our website or if you have suggestions to improve what we have done, do not hesitate to contact the webmaster.
Each page on the Dawlish Community Trust website is based on the same layout format and document structure.
The use of frames and tables to control the page layout has been avoided.
All pages on this website will adapt to fit the width of the browser that you are using without displaying a horizontal scroll bar. After changing the screen size you may have to refresh the screen display e.g. by pressing F5.
Browsers usually have various options for you to change display settings such as font face and size. However, this website also contains features that enable you to change font face and size at a touch of a button using links below the menu bar on the left-hand side of the screen.
Please note that in order to use these links to change font settings you your browser must be configured to enable cookies.
If your browser has cookies enabled you will see the following icons:
Content is kept separate from design by applying the design using CSS stylesheets. Different stylesheets are applied for different media, such as screens and printers, allowing the website to look and work on a variety of media.
These style sheets can be overridden by the user, either by creating a "user stylesheet" or using advanced browser features.
We have included alternative text for all images providing information about the image content for users who are viewing this website with images disabled or using a text-only browser.
All pages on this website should print in a "printer-friendly" format. This "printer-friendly" layout hides features used for navigation such as menu bars and displays hyperlinks underline, but in black (as opposed to coloured text) thus saving colour printer inks.
Any font settings (font face and size) that you have set for the screen display will be transferred across to the printed page.
