We are constantly working to ensure that this website is as accessible as possible to all internet users, including those with disabilities.

This website has been built and is periodically tested and updated to meet current standards and to be compliant and function with as many web browsers and versions of web browsers as possible. We work hard to ensure that this website complies with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (known as WCAG 2.1).

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

We have ensured that this website:

  • has logically structured content that can be navigated and read by a screen reader
  • uses proper markup for every feature including forms and data tables to properly define the relationships between content
  • does not use colour to distinguish or explain something
  • uses text colours that show up clearly against the background colour
  • can be used when the text size is increased by 200% and content reflows to a single column when it’s increased by 400%
  • does not use images of text

  • works as well as possible with assistive technologies
