Here at M&G we recognise the importance of providing a website that is inclusive and available for all user groups. This page explains the following:
- Our approach to making our website accessible;
- The facilities that we have in-built for different disability groups and how to use them; and
- What to do if you have any questions or feedback for us.
The M&G websites are being developed to support internet users who have disabilities. We believe the web pages on this site are in line with the Royal National Institute for the Blind’s (RNIB) “See It Right” accessibility criteria. This includes at least priority level 1 criteria of W3C’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.
