We aim to provide a website that is accessible to all of our visitors. The Disability and Equality Act of 2010 states unambiguously that private and public sector web sites must be accessible with respect to the provision of services online.
The layout takes into account users who are visually impaired or have difficulties using a mouse. It has been developed to be compatible with popular screen reading software, and can be navigated easily using just a keyboard.
We strive to conform, at a minimum, to Level triple-A compliance as specified by the W3C's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0.
In general, the site conforms to WAI Level Double-A rating where HTML is used. Where documents are made available in other formats such as Adobe Acrobat, conformance has not been achieved.
