      Torch is committed to safeguarding everyone who uses our services or comes into contact with us. Safeguarding is the responsibility of all of our staff and volunteers.

      Compliance status

      This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to non-compliances – this means the content in question is in scope of the regulations, but there’s an accessibility problem with it.

      Whilst we have not yet completed a full audit of our website, we’ve tried to adhere to the principles underpinning WCAG 2.1 rather than explicitly meeting the individual criteria. Where possible we have aimed to meet the AAA standard.

      Non accessible content

      Currently no content is non-accessible.
