Accessibility

We are committed to making the information and resources provided via our website accessible to all users. We aim to be standards compliant and follow general principles of usability and universal design, which should help all visitors to this website.

By using techniques to help users of assistive and adaptive technologies, we have provided one version of the site which everyone should be able to use.

This web site is intended to meet at least level 2 (AA) of the W3C's Website Accessibility Initiative (WAI) Guidelines, and as far as possible to meet level 3 (AAA). For more information about the WAI Guidelines see: Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0.

Through taking this approach we hope to make our site as inclusive as possible, and also to comply with UK legislation including the Disability Discrimination Act (1995) as amended by the Special Education Needs and Disability Act (2001), which states that it is an offence to discriminate against a disabled person by treating him or her less favourably than others for a reason relating to their disability.

We intend to continue improving our accessibility, so if you have any difficulty accessing this site and require further help, or if you have any suggestions to help improve our accessibility, please use our contact form.
