Website accessibility

We are working to make this site as accessible and easy to use as possible. This means we took accessibility into account when we built and tested the site, and we will continue to test it as its content and the technologies used to access it change.

We endeavoured to meet the WCAG 2.0 guidelines upon building the website and continue to strive to meet its criteria.

If you find an accessibility problem on any page, would like to tell us anything that would make your experience of our site better or would like anything in an alternative format, please contact us.

Turn on more accessible mode

Making the text bigger

You can use our text size toggle found in the form of three 'A A A's within the header of the website to make the website text bigger and smaller. Alternatively you may be able to change the text size in your browser.

Change the colours

We've tried to use colours that make web pages easy to read, but we know some people have trouble with reading text on certain colours. You can use our colour toggle found in the form of five contrast circles within the header of the website to enable you to choose the most suitable colour contrast for your needs i.e. black on white background. You may also be able to use your own colours with your browser.

Document downloads

We aim to provide all information as web pages where possible. Sometimes we provide information in other formats such as PDF (Portable Document Format), Word documents and Excel spreadsheets.

We are working to reduce the use of documents on our website, and to making content we must provide in document format more accessible.


To make things easier for screen reader users, images have descriptive alternative text. If the image is purely decorative or part of a link, the alt text is null.

Visual design

This site uses cascading style sheets for visual layout. If your browser or browsing device does not support style sheets, the content of each page is designed to be still readable.
