Most computers have accessibility settings you can change including; the way the screen looks (e.g. changing fonts, sizes, colours etc), the way the keyboard or mouse works and possibly speaking and listening to commands as well as a range of other features.

As several organisations have already produced lots of very good content about how to make computers and websites more accessible we have linked to these sites rather than duplicate their content.

My web, My way produced by the BBC is a comprehensive site with loads of useful information and a wealth of accessibility links.

The purpose of this publication scheme is to be a means by which the Council can make a significant amount of information available routinely. The scheme will ensure that the council will publish more information proactively, and help it to develop a greater culture of openness and transparency.

This authority's key responsibilities are to represent the electorate of its area, to take action within the legal framework and to provide a leadership focus for the community. The Freedom of Information Act 2000 received Royal Assent on 30th November 2000. It gives a general right of access to all types of recorded information held by public authorities, sets out exemptions from that right and places a number of obligations on public authorities. A 'public authority' is defined in the Act, and includes but is not restricted to central and local government, non-departmental public bodies, the police, the National Health Service, and schools, college and universities. Any person who makes a request to a public authority for information must be informed whether the public authority holds that information and, subject to exemptions, supplied with that information.

Individuals already have the right of access to information about themselves under the Data Protection Act 1998. As far as public authorities are concerned, the Freedom of Information Act will extend this right to allow public access to all types of information held.

New legislation came into force in 2008 requiring that Town/Parish Councils adopt a mandatory publication scheme to be operational from 1st January 2009.

Powers and Duties

The Parish Council does not have major powers to carry out policies but it is able to advise and put pressure on the larger authorities in respect to the present and future development and condition of the Civil Parish area. The Council is also able to organise, within the confines of its budget, schemes to improve the social life of the Parish.

Sheffield City Council has the statutory duty to deal with housing, education, social services, recreation, cleansing, planning, libraries, highways and the environment. Any work/schemes carried out by the Parish Council cannot impinge on the statutory duties of the City Council as this is classed as double rating.

Powers and Duties for Parish/Town Councils

The Local Authorities (Functions and Responsibilities) (England) Regulations 2000 outlines the powers and duties. Their web site may be viewed by clicking here.
