The PAS is definitely a very good place to start (and a free copy can be
downloaded here
http://www.drc-gb.org/library/website_accessibility_guidance/pas_78.aspx
). It gives good guidance on planning and implementing accessibility in
websites.

I noticed that your friend is based in local Government so they may want
to look at the UK Government Guidelines as well
http://www.cabinetoffice.gov.uk/e-government/resources/handbook/html/2-4

We also publish our RNIB See it Right Accessible Website Guidelines in
the Web Access Centre a http://www.rnib.org.uk/wac in the downloads
page.

Maybe the pas 78 guidelines will be of use:

http://www.bsi-global.com/ICT/PAS78/index.xalter

"It is applicable to all public and private organizations that wish to
observe good practice under the existing voluntary guidelines and the
relevant legislation on this subject and is intended for use by those
responsible for commissioning public-facing websites and web-based
services."
