Accessibility

 

When we talk about accessibility on this site, we mean it in its widest sense. The site is designed to work for disabled users, to be accessible on as many devices as possible, and our written content and images were devised to be understood by the broadest possible range of people.

Our aim

 

Our aim is that no one visiting the site should be excluded from a significant piece of content or experience because of a disability or because of the device or browser they are using to view the site.

Accessibility measures

 

The site has been built to an AA accessibility standard, as defined by the W3C initiative. Put simply, this means that the most common barriers for disabled users will not be found on this site.

While the site should be accessible, if you are finding it difficult to use, it has been built to allow you to customizse its appearance using the controls in your browser.
