We're committed to making our website as accessible as possible to all audiences (including those with visual, hearing, cognitive or motor impairments) to meet its requirements under the Disability Discrimination Act.
In this instance, accessibility refers to the attempt to ensure that our sites content can be read by everyone, regardless of disability and technology used.
We understand that accessibility should not be seen as an "optional extra", but must be considered as a fundamental consideration at every stage of site development work, and we try to ensure that our media works consistently with its assistive technologies to ensure an accessible experience for disabled users.
Often people are at a disadvantage when browsing a web site because they have not been accounted for in the design of the site. We have tried to provide a high level of accessibility and developments in this regard are ongoing.
Currently, we ensure compliance with World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0. We are also striving to meet level 2 compliance, where possible, under these guidelines.
Below are examples of ways the site is made more accessible to people:
This is a representative sample of guidelines that we aim to adhere to. Please contact us if you have any accessibility concerns.
