Accessibility Standards

The Charity Commission for Northern Ireland’s web site content is developed to permit access to the widest possible audience. This web site is built using code compliant with W3C standards. Please contact us at if you have any difficulty using the site, or would like to suggest improvements.


Every CCNI web page has a navigation bar at the top to allow you to move from section to section. Every page also has a crumb trail below the main navigation which shows the route followed, e.g. if you were to go to the "Our vision, mission and values" section in "About Us" the crumb trail would read: Home > About us > About the Charity Commission > Our vision, mission and values. As well as helping you see where you are, the crumb trail can also be used to navigate back to where you came from.
