Website Accessibility

This website has been developed to serve the largest possible audience, using the broadest range of systems and to consider any needs that users with disabilities might have.

Change the way this website looks - Using tools on your computer

You can control the look and functionality of this website, depending on your computer settings.

Most computers will have accessibility settings you can change including; the way the screen looks (e.g. changing; fonts, sizes, colours, etc), the way the keyboard or mouse works and possibly speaking and listening to commands as well as a range of other features.

As several organisations have already produced lots of very good content about how to make computers and websites more accessible, we have linked to these sites rather than duplicate this content.

Accessibility Standards and this Website

We are continuously improving this website to ensure that it meets the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines issued by the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI). The WAI website content guidelines, published in 1999 by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), are the globally used and accepted standard for website accessibility, by both the corporate and public sector. We are currently working towards the AA standard but are aware that we do not achieve this currently on all pages.
