Website accessibility

We aim to make our website accessible by following certain standards and Government guidelines to ensure that it can be used by everyone.

The website has been designed to comply with the standards set by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Accessibility Initiative 'AA' standard.

Compatibility with assistive technology

We work to ensure our website will work with recent versions of screen readers, screen magnifiers, speech recognition software and that it is keyboard enabled. 

External links

When you access an external website, the site will load in the same window from where you clicked on the link.

Although opening a link in a new window may appear to be the best way of linking to an external site, research has shown that opening new windows can be disorientating and less user friendly.

To return back to our website use the back arrow buttons on the top of the toolbar or type our web address in the address bar.
