At Volunteero inclusivity and accessibility are deeply rooted in our culture. We exist to improve access to volunteering for all.

Volunteero is committed to providing a website, web app and mobile app that are accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of technology or ability. We are actively working to increase the accessibility and usability of our platform and in doing so adhere to many of the available standards and guidelines.

Non Technical measures to support accessibility

Volunteero takes the following measures to ensure the accessibility of the Volunteero App:

Include accessibility throughout our internal policies.
Integrate accessibility into our procurement practices.
Provide continual accessibility training for our staff.
Assign clear accessibility goals and responsibilities.

Technical measures to support accessibility


  • Provide text alternatives for non-text content
    -  Where colours are used to convey information, text alternatives are also provided
  • Provide captions and other alternatives for multimedia
    -  We include accessibility labels on various buttons across the app
  • Create content that can be presented in different ways, including by assistive technologies, without losing meaning
    - We support headings/landmarks to mission pages for better screen reader support
  • Make it easier for users to see and hear content
    -  We meet the WCAG contrast requirements to make it easier to see
    -  We offer light and dark mode for those users who have sight impairments
    -  We regularly test text-to-speech for the app ensuring that all elements can properly be read by default text-to-speech programs on mainstream devices


  • Make all functionality available from a keyboard
    -  We include aria labels on the navigation
  • Give users enough time to read and use content
  • Do not use content that causes seizures or physical reactions
  • Help users navigate and find content
  • Make it easier to use inputs other than keyboard


  • Make text readable and understandable
  • Make content appear and operate in predictable ways

Conformance status

We are partially conformant with WCAG 2.1 accessibility standards. The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) define requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA. Volunteero Web App is partially conformant with WCAG 2.1 level AA. Partially conformant means that some parts of the content do not fully conform to the accessibility standard.

Technical specifications

Accessibility of Volunteero App relies on the following technologies to work with the particular combination of web browser and any assistive technologies or plugins installed on your computer:

  • React Native
  • VueJS

These technologies are relied upon for conformance with the accessibility standards used.

Assessment approach

Volunteero assessed the accessibility of Volunteero App by self-evaluation but will seek in the future to seek external independent evaluation.
