Accessibility

This page provides information about the accessibility of our website.

We are committed to the principle of accessibility: that our service should be available to everyone, at the same level, and on equal terms. To this end, we are striving to adhere to accessibility guidelines and increase our website’s ease of use by everyone, including people with disabilities. Our efforts include:

  • Maintaining a standard navigation structure throughout.
  • Using semantic HTML (HyperText Markup Language) including headings, paragraphs and lists to create a logical document structure.
  • Allowing visitors to resize the website text using their browser settings.
  • Using plain backgrounds to improve the readability of text.
  • Using foreground and background colour combinations with sufficient contrast.
  • Using meaningful alternative text attributes on images where appropriate.
  • Providing a responsive layout that adapts to suit the visitor’s screen size and resolution.
  • Ensuring all hyperlinks use descriptive and meaningful text whilst avoiding short-hand language such as ‘Click here’.
  • Using plain English that is straightforward and easy to understand.
