Accessibility Statement

This page sets out the standards to which this site has been developed and how you can get the most out of the website. If you have questions or requests for a change in the website’s accessibility please email MASTS.

[update July 2022] MASTS is pleased to announce it has produced its own “Accessibility Guidelines and Pledges” to outline actions MASTS will undertake in its communications and events so that all its content is accessible to those wish to engage with the organisation. Download the PDF of the Accessibility Guidelines And Pledges – July 2022 here. This document has been reviewed by a Digital Accessibility Officer and will be updated when necessary. Newer versions of the document will be uploaded to the MASTS Accessibility webpage. We will also be providing speakers for any upcoming events, such as the MASTS Annual Science Meeting, with a document titled “Accessibility Guidance for Presenters” to ensure their talks can be as accessible as possible. Furthermore, for any in-person events MASTS will provide an access statement where further information about the venue’s access can be found.
