Children on the Edge are committed to ensuring that our website is accessible and easy to use for the widest range of users possible. We recognise this is an ongoing process which we are continually seeking to improve.
Updated: January 2020.
We strive to ensure that our services are accessible to people with disabilities. We have invested time to help ensure that this website is made easier to use and more accessible, with the strong belief that every person has the right to live with dignity, equality, comfort and independence.
Accessibility on childrenontheedge.org
On this site, we have installed the UserWay Website Accessibility Widget which is powered by a dedicated accessibility server. The software allows childrenontheedge.org to improve its compliance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1).
Enabling the Accessibility Menu
The accessibility menu can be enabled by pressing Ctrl + U on the keyboard or clicking the accessibility menu icon that hovers on the left bottom corner of the screen (a grey circle with an image of a person). After triggering the accessibility menu, please wait a moment for it to load entirely.
Accessing PDF documents
There are a variety of PDF documents available for download on our website. You can find out how to configure the free Adobe Reader software to obtain greater access to PDF files by visiting the Adobe site.

We continue our efforts to constantly improve the accessibility of our website in the belief that it is our collective moral obligation to allow seamless, accessible and unhindered use also for those of us with disabilities.
Despite our efforts to make all pages and content on childrenontheedge.org fully accessible, some content may not have yet been fully adapted to the strictest accessibility standards. We are working to improve and to address all issues.
