Accessible information 

This website is managed by Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership (AWP) NHS Trust. Our aim is to provide accessible information and ensure equal access to our services, so that everyone can use the AWP website. 

You can find out more about how we make our website accessible below, including details on how we can further help you if you need to access information in a different format.  

Access keys 

Access keys allow you to get to a specific page from the navigation menu by using your keyboard. You can use your keyboard arrows (left/right/up/down) to browse through the navigation menus on a page to find what you are looking for. 

Screen readers 

Our website remains accessible if you have a visual impairment. It has been tested and is compatible with a range of screen-reading software and different devices. 

Languages and Google Translate 

You can use Google's free online translate service directly from our website. This is available via the 'Select Language' feature which appears at the top of each page. 

Please note: AWP is not responsible for the accuracy of translation provided via this feature. Medical and technical terms may not always translate accurately on Google Translate. 

Interpreting and translation services 

If your first language is not English or if you use British Sign Language, our staff can book a range of interpreting and translation services for you. 

The Royal College of Psychiatrists website offers a range of leaflets about different mental health conditions translated into over 25 languages. 


You can also access an area of our website called BSLSpace which provides information about our services in British Sign language via videos and subtitles. 

Large print 

Our staff can organise large print versions of letters or leaflets on request 

Easy read 

We are also developing a range of Easy Read information.
