Gene People’s website has been designed to be accessible to all.

As a charity, we strive to show the same lack of discrimination that disease and disability do.  Therefore we have created our website using standards-compliant XHTML and CSS coding, striving to meet the ‘AA’ access standards laid out by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).  ‘AA’ standards are those recommended by the RNIB.

If you do have any difficulties accessing any of the content on our site, please contact describing the problem you’re having, and we’ll do what we can to help.


Our website can be viewed in the majority of browsers.
