Accessibility guidelines

Our aim is to ensure that all pages of this website conform to level A of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG 2.0). These guidelines are the internationally recognised benchmark for building accessible websites.

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines explain how to make websites more accessible for people with disabilities. Conformity to these guidelines also makes websites more user friendly for all people.

Accessibility features

Keyboard access

We have provided ‘skip to main content’ links to allow direct access past the navigation menu to the page’s main content.

Text size

You can vary the text size by using your browser’s text resize option: View – Text Size.

Alternative text for images

All images have been given appropriate alternative text.

Heading elements

HTML heading elements have been used to represent page structure, supporting assistive technologies that allow page navigation from heading to heading.

Link text

All hyperlinks should make sense when read out of context, and hyperlinks are clearly presented in a different text style from normal body text.

JavaScript independence

Where JavaScript or other scripts are used for navigation or functionality, an alternative mechanism has been put in place in case your browser does not support these scripts.

Style sheets

We have used Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to control the presentation of pages and have used properly structured markup for content. If style sheets are not supported or are turned off, information on the site can still be accessed and read.
