We are committed to providing a web experience accessible to all of our visitors. We use digital quality management and accessibility tools to continually improve equal access to our web content and information.  We strive to meet the level AA criteria of the World Wide Web Consortium Web Accessibility Initiative (WCAG WAI) 2.0 guidelines.

Text size

You can vary the text size by using your browser’s text resize option: in many web browsers this can be accessed by selecting View ? Text Size or by pressing Ctrl + and Ctrl - on your keyboard.

Alternative text for images

All appropriate images have been given alternative text.

Heading elements

HTML heading elements have been used to represent page structure, supporting assistive technologies that allow page navigation from heading to heading.

Link text

All hyperlinks should make sense when read out of context, and hyperlinks are clearly presented in a different text style from normal body text.

Colour contrast

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.

Style sheets

We have used Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to control the presentation of pages. If style sheets are not supported or are turned off, information on the site can still be accessed and read.
