The website complies with guidelines to ensure it is accessible to a wide range of people regardless of ability. The site templates have been designed to meet the "AA" level of compliance with the WAI Accessibility Guidelines and wherever possible, pages within the template will meet this standard.
The website supports the latest versions of all modern browsers, people still using older browsers will be able to navigate the site, the site and content will still be accessible but they may have a slightly different experience with functionality. We advise updating your browser to the latest version.
We have provided “skip to main content” links to allow direct access past the navigation menu to the page’s main content.
You can vary the text size by using your browser’s text resize option: View – Text Size.
All images (where possible) have been given appropriate alternative text.
HTML heading elements have been used to represent page structure, supporting assistive technologies that allow page navigation from heading to heading.
All hyperlinks should make sense when read out of context, and hyperlinks are clearly presented in a different text style from normal body text.
We have checked text and background colour combinations to ensure that the contrast is sufficient and we have also ensured that information is not referenced by colour alone.
We have used Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to control the presentation of pages and have used properly structured mark-up for content. If the style sheets are not supported or are turned off, information on the site can still be accessed and read.
If you have any issues accessing our website, please let us know.
