Accessibility Statement

We have tried to make this website as accessible as possible and easy to use for everyone, regardless of circumstance or ability.

This page states our intention that our website is usable and accessible to all users and details some of the measures taken. This website’s objective are to conform to the Guidelines for UK government websites, which support the W3C’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0, Level AA, to ensure a Web accessibility standard have been achieved and are maintained.

We are making every effort to ensure that we don’t exclude any users. For example:

We try to use clear and simple language.

We use alternative text for all our images

The HTML we produce conforms to the standard: XHTML 1.0 Strict

We have tested the colours we use in the design for contrast.

We try to publish all our text content as accessible HTML rather than in other formats such as PDF. Where we do publish PDFs or other formats our policy is to make them as accessible as we can.

Please contact us if you have any questions, if you are having difficulties using the site, or would like to know more about what we are doing to make our websites accessible.
