Accessibility

We want our website to be accessible to everyone. We are continually seeking to improve our website and make it easy to use.

To make our website easy to view, we’ve designed it in accordance with guidelines from the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI). Pages have been built to comply with a standard of at least WCAG 2.0 AA guidelines.

 

Helpful features

We have designed the site for different monitor sizes – including mobile phones and tablets.

We use meaningful alternative text for all images to provide descriptive text for screen readers.

We make sure that our brand colours are used in a consistent way to make text stand out.

We use a non serif font which is easy to read.

We use hyperlink text.

We are also working hard to make sure our site has useful clearly written content that is laid out so the site is easy to navigate.
