We are committed to providing accessible services to all. Therefore this site has been carefully constructed to deliver its content in the most usable and accessible ways within the current technological contraints.
Design & Structure
This website is published in HTML 5 format and uses Cascading Style Sheets for layout. Appropriate header elements have been used to define the page structures. All content should be comprehensible and the site should be fully navigable with CSS styles disabled.
We are striving to meet Priority 2 of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. We aim to continually improve our compliance and welcome any comment on our progress so far.
Some documents published for download on this website may be in Adobe PDF format. To read PDF documents with a screen reader please go to the Access Adobe website which provides useful tools and resources.
It is possible to change the colours used on this website. You can select from a number of themes that will provide reversed background and foreground colours for example. Any setting you choose will persist throughout this session and, if your browser stores cookies, they will remain when you next visit this site. To do this go to the customisation page
The text size on this website can be made larger. On a PC this is done by holding down the control and mouse wheel or plus and minus buttons. Using a Mac hold down the command or ‘apple’ key and again use the mouse wheel or plus and minus button. In modern browsers those controls will zoom the entire website. If you would rather just have larger text without the site zooming then you can use the text size form at the top of this page.
