We want to make this website accessible to everyone. You can click the accessibility tool bar at any time, and it will open a menu that allows you to view the site in a variety of ways, ie. bigger text, different colour contrast and colour schemes. If you still have issues reading or accessing the site please let us know, and we will endeavour to fix it.

We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts using tools of your choice
  • zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
  • listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)

We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.
