This website is run by Wyre Forest District Council on behalf of North Worcestershire Business Awards.

We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts
  • zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
  • listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)


We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.
