The Children's Court understands the importance of having an accessible website.

Our goal is to provide information to as many people as possible.

We have used plain language wherever we could.

We have used the Hemingway Editor to verify the content is year 8 reading level or lower.

Accessibility Accreditation

The pages on this website meet Level AA of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1.

An audit was done by Web Key IT on 7 March 2023.

Forms and other documents are currently not compliant with the accessibility guidelines.

Please contact the court is you are having any problems with the website.
