Push to test your website for full accessibility | In the news: data in the UK Data Service collection across the web | Scoop.it
Inclusion is now at the top of most companies’ agendas, and companies are familiar with paying homage to the concept. Accessibility is part of this, which means that people with disabilities can navigate technology in the same amount of time and effort as healthy people. This means that all web users can be empowered, independent, and not frustrated by poor design and implementation. But in reality, many companies struggle to translate values ​​such as inclusiveness and accessibility and apply these concepts to visible measurements and features.

The FINANCIAL - Are we facing a mental health pandemic? | In the news: data in the UK Data Service collection across the web | Scoop.it
Over the past year, much has been written on the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the mental health of children and adults. 

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) has been working to monitor the effect of the last year’s events on people’s personal well-being and mental health. Two new pieces of analysis have been published today, providing early insights into self-reported depression in adults during the early 2021 lockdown, and experimental analysis of the number of depression diagnoses by GPs during the early stages of the pandemic in 2020. Here the authors Tim Vizard and Theo Joloza give the latest picture of what we know about depression and adults during the pandemic so far.

Welsh drivers to put the brake on driving to work as MORE THAN launches new 'Low Miler' car insurance | In the news: data in the UK Data Service collection across the web | Scoop.it
One in five (22%) drivers predict using their cars less, even when restrictions fully lift, with a quarter (25%) driving less miles for commuting.

The pandemic has accelerated a long-term decline in the number of miles Brits drive according to car insurer MORE THAN, which today launches a new mileage-based car insurance product in response to the emergence of two distinct driver types – ‘low mile’ and ‘higher mile’ drivers.

As COVID-19 restrictions ease, MORE THAN reveals that 22% of Welsh drivers expect to use their car less over the next year, compared to pre-pandemic levels, with respondents predicting more time spent at home (73%), relying more on online delivery services (35%) and permanent changes to their working patterns (23%) as key reasons behind them driving less in the future.

What are retrouvailles?

Reunions are on the horizon, but what is it about social bonds that makes them run so deep?
Family means something different to all of us. For some, it’s nuclear, for others it’s blended, adopted, or chosen. Our friends also join us in our inner circles, standing with us through the good and bad – celebrating our successes, and filling our worlds with laughter, love, and happiness.

It goes without saying that the past year has been a difficult one for connections, and it’s hit our mental health hard. Between October 2020 and February 2021, results from the Opinions and Lifestyle Survey (OPN) found that 7.2% of adults (about 3.7 million people) reported that they felt lonely ‘often’ or ‘always’.

“Wales - is that in England?” they’ll ask me on my world travels.

Not quite. Wales is a Celtic country located within the United Kingdom, west of England and overlooking the Irish Sea.

I was five when we moved into our family home, making sure to secure the very best view for myself: a panorama of the Eryri mountain range. Even as a child I never took it for granted, the snow-capped peaks remaining white like icing sugar well into the month of May each year.

People cheated by fraudsters are being let down by police despite the “staggering” levels of the crime and its damaging impact on lives, the Victims’ Commissioner warned today.

In the latest of our series examining online scams, Dame Vera Baird said that she was “deeply concerned” that “very few cases of fraud are genuinely investigated” and that the harm caused by the crime was not being taken seriously.
