Accessible — Use semantic HTML, and make sure we meet the WCAG 2.1 AA standard as a minimum and it works with assisted technologies (this sits alongside the DWP Accessibility Manual)

• Agnostic — Build mobile-first and make it work across a range of devices, and user contexts

• Robust — Use progressive enhancement, make sure what we build fails gracefully

• Performant — Optimise our code/assets for the best possible performance across a range of networks and devices

• Secure — Create a secure service which protects users’ privacy. Use strict content security policies and guard against common OWASP attacks.
