Thurrock Council received the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) 'See It Right' Accessible Website logo for the first time on 7 March 2003. The presence of the logo on any web site indicates that within the past year the RNIB have thoroughly assessed the site and judged it to have achieved a reasonable standard of accessibility for blind and partially sighted web users.
Thurrock Council was most recently re-awarded the 'See It Right' logo on 27 January 2011. Bim Egan, Senior Web Access Consultant for the RNIB, commented:
"We're happy to award the See it Right logo to Thurrock, for the eighth year running. Many congratulations and thanks for all the hard work you do to maintain such a high standard of functional accessibility."
At the time of this award, Thurrock Council was one of only two U.K. local authorities entitled to display the logo.
