Welsh Assembly Government



We’re here to help you make your visit to the Welsh Assembly Government web-site as easy and informative as possible.
We worked with a group of volunteers from across Wales who tested every aspect of the site redesign - from deciding which Topic areas to use, to choosing page layouts and colours - our users made every decision for us.

Using the site...

Access Options

Access optionsOne of our primary motivations for redesigning the site was to make it more accessible and more usable. Part of the way we've addressed this is through the inclusion of Accessibility Options. These allow you to tailor the way you view the site to fit your own preferences.

Access Keys

We've assigned Access Keys that can help you to navigate around the site using your keyboard instead of your mouse. A lot of people don't use a mouse to browse wesbites, and we've tried to choose keys that won't interfere with other keyboard functions.

Site Map

The site map shows the whole site at a glance. Every word on the page is a link, and every link goes to a live page.
Try finding information with the site map when you want to see all the pages under a Topic area without having to click around the site.
