Latest survey results


of all UK council websites pass the Better Connected test that evaluates their accessibility to people with disabilities, including those using assistive technologies like text-to-speech screenreaders or keyboard-only controls.

Testing is carried out on our behalf by the Digital Accessibility Centre, and shows significant improvement since last year, when only 43% passed.  Scottish sites have done particularly well this year with 81% passing the test.

Upcoming surveys

We are well advanced with the survey on building control (building regulations in Scotland) and have nearly completed the housing survey, which this time is for metropolitan districts only. We will soon be starting the libraries survey on e-resources (counties only). All these are due to be completed and reported on before Christmas.

See our blog for information on task sets for different council types and watch out for announcements in Socitm broadcasts.
