The Settlement Services International website has been designed to Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 AA standards and was certified as meeting those standards in June 2017.

These standards are followed in order to make the contents of this website accessible to people of all abilities.

SSI’s objective is for this site to be understandable regardless of any disability or impediment, providing as far as possible the same experience for all.

Content should be obtainable and functional in current generation browsers and assistive technologies.

To assist some users to navigate the site, each page contains:

  • a skip to content link, to move directly to the beginning of the page content, and
  • a skip to navigation link, to move to the page navigation links, to the site index, site map, staff directory, news, events and contacts.

Using a modern browser that supports web standards ensures that the site's full visual experience is available. Consider upgrading your browser if you are using an older technology.
