Accessibility Statement

Many Internet users with disabilities find websites difficult or even impossible to use simply because of the way they are designed. We have a responsibility under the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) to ensure our pages are accessible to all and we take this responsibility very seriously.

We try to design our websites to meet the World Wide Web Consortium's Web Accessibility Initiative (W3CWAI) Level 2 (AA) guidelines as a minimum but where possible we aim to work to the higher level 3 (AAA) guidelines.

We are currently aware of issues for Screen Reader users when navigating through large areas of material which is shown/hidden to sighted users by way of expanding accordion menus. We are looking at ways of improving the user experience for screen reader users but in the meantime if you are using a screen reader you may find it easier to navigate the site using headings rather than links.

If you come across a part of our site that is difficult to use or could be improved in terms of accessibility we apologise and would be very grateful if you could contact us. Your feedback is an invaluable part of the process of improving our site.
