Our goal is to make this website as accessible as possible and easy to use for everyone.
We aim to comply with the AA standard of the W3C web content accessibility guidelines (WCAG).

We developed the design and layout of the site to be compatible with screen readers and it can be navigated without the use of a mouse or keyboard.
We are making every effort to ensure that we don't exclude any users. For example by:
- using clear and simple language
- providing meaningful alternative text for images
- ensuring the target of each link is clearly defined
- providing a sitemap
- ensuring the HTML code we produce conforms to the standard: XHTML; 1.0 Transitional.
We also try to publish all our text content as accessible HTML rather than in other formats such as PDF. Where we do use PDFs and you experience trouble downloading them, see our downloads advice.
Please contact us if you have any questions, if you are having difficulties using the site, or would like to know more about what we are doing to make our websites accessible.
