Accessibility

No website can claim to be 100% accessible, however we’re committed to making sure our site design works towards the latest best practice guidance from the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI).

We have designed the site with the following accessibility guidelines in mind:

  • Navigation throughout the site works in a consistent way.
  • We use a standard web font to make it easy for all to read.
  • All images are given ‘alt text’ alternatives.
  • We don't use colour as the only way to convey information.

Adobe Acrobat is required to view and print PDF documents that appear on this website. To download this program for free, visit the Adobe website. To read PDF documents with a screen reader please link to the Access Adobe website which provides useful tools and resources.

If you have difficulty accessing the site or have any comments or feedback, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
