Accessibility

We have tried to make this website as accessible as possible and easy to use for everyone, regardless of circumstance or ability.

All our page templates comply with the W3C Priority 2 checkpoints as a minimum requirement and we make every effort to ensure that all the content on our site meets this standard too.

We conducted user testing for accessibility during the development of the site, with users with diverse access requirements using a range of assistive technologies. We also commissioned an independent accessibility review and acted on the findings.

The site is compatible with screen readers and can be navigated without the use of a mouse or keyboard.

We are making every effort to ensure that we don’t exclude any users. For example:

We try to use clear and simple language.We use alternative text for all our images.The HTML we produce conforms to the standard: XHTML 1.0 Transitional.We have tested the colours we use in the design for contrast.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions, are having difficulties using the site, or would like to know more about what we are doing to make our websites accessible.
