Using This Website

East Sussex County Council runs this website. We aim to make it as easy to use as possible. You should be able to:

  • Change colours, contrast levels, and fonts
  • Zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
  • Navigate most of the website using only a keyboard
  • Listen to our website using a screen reader.

Please visit AbilityNet to find out how to make these changes. (Link opens in new browser window)

All non-text content has a text alternative.


We use plain English to make the text easy to read. We aim to create content for a reading age of 11. We run readability audits on our content. This allows us to make continual improvements.

If you would like to read this website in another language, you can use Google Translate. (Link opens in new browser window)
