This copyright-protected material (other than any organisational logos) may be reproduced free of charge in any format or medium for the purposes of research, private study or for internal circulation within an NHS organisation. This is subject to the material being reproduced accurately, with appropriate credit and referencing (see below) and not used in a misleading context.

Where any of the items on this site are being republished or copied to other websites or anywhere else, the source of the material must be clearly identified and the copyright status acknowledged.

If there is material on this site that is the copyright of a third party then you must seek authorisation from the copyright holders, and not Swansea Bay University Health Board.

Intellectual property

The names, images, and logos within the tidyMinds website are the proprietary marks of Swansea Bay University Health Board. Copying and using our logos or any other third party logos accessed via this website is not permitted without the prior approval of the relevant copyright owner.

Links from this site to other sites

The tidyMinds website contains links to various websites that are operated by third parties over whom we have no control. Links are provided for information and convenience only. We cannot accept responsibility for the sites linked to, or the information found there. We also cannot guarantee that these links will work all of the time and we have no control over the availability of the linked pages.

A link does not mean that we endorse a site. Likewise, not linking to a particular site does not imply lack of endorsement. We therefore do not make any representation – and do not accept any liability – in respect of the content, products or services available from such websites, or the business of such third parties. Any dealings with advertisers and merchants accessed using the tidyMinds website shall be entirely at your own risk.

Links to this site from other sites

The Health Board encourages users to link to the tidyMinds website from their own websites, materials and communications, by way of in-line or in-page links. However, we do not permit our pages to be loaded into frames on any other site.

Accuracy

We try to make sure that the information contained in this website is both accurate and complete. However, we accept no responsibility for any damages or loss arising from the use of this information. We try hard to ensure content on the tidyMinds website could not be deemed offensive to an individual or a collection of individuals, and that content adheres to common principles of decency and taste. However, we do not accept any liability for any content published by contributors through any internal notice board pages.

Availability

We cannot guarantee uninterrupted access to this website, or the sites to which it links.

Virus protection

We make every effort to check and test material at all stages of production. It is always wise for you to run an anti-virus program on all material downloaded from the internet. We cannot accept any responsibility for any loss, disruption or damage to your data or your computer system that may occur while using material derived from this website.

Accessibility

We want to make sure as many users as possible can access the tidyMinds website and its content, regardless of their access needs, their age or ability.

To provide the best possible experience, we aim to comply with a common high standard: WCAG 2.1 AA (W3C WCAG 2.1 Accessibility Guidelines). This means that we have taken great care in creating our website to make it easy for everyone to use. Our approach to accessibility includes consideration of the following:

Design

We have designed the site to be highly accessible. We have chosen a font that is highly legible, including for users with dyslexia, and we avoid italics as these can be difficult for some users to read. Our colour palette is carefully chosen so that there is high contrast between colours and the background, meaning that text is very legible. We know that some users with extra cognitive needs may find the colours bright so feel free to use grayscale mode on your device, or some browsers have a greyscale plug-in.

Content

Content has been created to be easily read and understood. It is designed to work well for users who use assistive technology such as screen-readers, and within the responsive website. We use discernible, descriptive links and alt text for our images where this is useful to aid understanding.

Accessible, responsive page design and build

The site has been built using up to date knowledge of best practice for accessibility. Users should be able to easily tab between sections using their keyboard. The site is built to be responsive so that the experience is as consistent as possible for users, regardless of the device or browser on which they are viewing the website. Users can zoom into the content while still having a good experience because content flows across the various screen sizes. Text sizes respond to suit the platform on which it is being viewed, including optimisation for the most common browsers and devices.

Information in other languages

The website continues to develop and there is a commitment to the site to be available in both English and Welsh by the Autumn. For users with other language requirements we recommend using the language selector at the top of our site, native tools (e.g. on your smartphone or computer) or a browser extension that allows translation.

External resources

We do our best to ensure that external resources and embedded content will meet the same accessibility guidelines, including choosing videos with sub-titles and sites that are built to a similarly high level of accessibility. However we cannot guarantee that this will be the case with sites or apps that we link to.
