Site assessmentThis website is regularly tested to make sure it is usable and accessible. We use several methods to do this:
- SiteMorse assessments
- Better Connected report (by Society of IT Managers - SOCITM)
- Plain English Campaign Internet Crystal Mark.
SiteMorse assessmentsThis quarterly UK-wide report examines our site and awards marks for accessibility, performance, functionality and code quality. For more information, visit the SiteMorse website
We were ranked 97th out of 429 websites in the last SiteMorse survey (March 2012).
Better Connected report (SOCITM)This annual UK-wide report, conducted by the Society of IT Managers (SOCITM), assesses our site for a range of areas, including resilience, news value and readability.
We were ranked as a three-star website in the latest Better Connected report (March 2013). We're the only local authority website in Northern Ireland to achieve this status. Our A-Z directory and Find my nearest facility were picked out as examples of good practice.
