Accessibility

How we make our website available to all our visitors

Ease of Use

We want this site to be accessible to a wide audience, regardless of the technology they are using or their ability. It has been built to comply with UK regulations concerning website accessibility, using standards compliant HTML/CSS code. We hope this ensures a positive experience for all, but if you need further support, we have provided below some suggestions that may help you use the site more effectively.

Text Resizing

The modern browsers we support (typically the latest versions of Chrome, Edge, Firefox and Safari) feature in-built accessibility tools, including zoom and text-resizing.

You can change the text size or adjust the page zoom in your browser by following these instructions:

  • PC:
    • Increase page zoom: Hold down the CTRL key and press +
    • Decrease page zoom: Hold down the CTRL key and press –
  • Mac:
    • Increase page zoom: Hold down the Command key and press +
    • Decrease page zoom: Hold down the Command key and press –

Access Keys

Access keys are keyboard shortcuts which allow users to navigate around a website without using a mouse or other pointing device. They can override keyboard shortcuts for screen readers and other assistive technology. However, there no standard set of access keys that functions cross-browser, so we have decided not to use them on this site. Instead, you can move between links using the ‘Tab’ key on the keyboard. To tab through the links in the opposite direction, key ‘Shift+Tab’. Once a link is highlighted, key ‘Enter’ to follow the link.

Screen Reader Users

We have created a logical reading order on the site to help your comprehension of the content when using a reader. We have also used headings and semantic link text to allow you to navigate the site with ease.

Style Sheets

The site uses style sheets so if your browser does not support CSS or you wish to use your own style sheets, you can do. If you are not sure how to do this, please consult your browser software provider.

Accessibility Queries

We are always open to suggestions for improving the accessibility of the website. If you have any difficulties using this site that you believe we could address, please let us know using the contact form. Thanks.
