Website accessibility

The Arthur Ransome Trust (ART) is an educational charitable trust. We are registered with the Charities Commission for England & Wales. Our registration number is 1136565.

ART exists to give everyone opportunities to discover and enjoy Arthur Ransome’s life and works. We therefore want to make this website as accessible and usable as possible.

Changes to this statement

This statement was updated with effect from 20 May, 2019.

We may update it from time-to-time. This may be because of a regular review, because we become aware of ways in which it – or, more importantly, the website accessibility itself – can be clarified or improved, or in order to comply with changes in legislation.


We are aware that our direct collective experience of even quite common user needs is limited. So are our website development resources. Therefore we recognise that our site may not be working quite as well as it might for you. If you have a specific need, or can offer constructive advice, then please do let us know.
