Access Statement

We have done our best to make our web site as accessible as possible, and we've done this by adhering sensibly and practically to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) produced by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C, the web's governing body).

For those not familiar with the WCAG, this is a set of checkpoints designed to ensure that web sites are designed and written properly. For those familiar with the WCAG, we've aimed for AAA compliance but have not adhered to some checkpoints that are no longer relevant or have been demonstrated to hinder accessibility. Our references include the recommendations made in the Disability Rights Commission (DRC) formal investigation and report on web accessibility in the UK in 2004.

Examples of good practice are:

  •  colour contrast between foreground and background is sufficiently strong
  •  text re-sizes according to user preference
  •  headings are correctly used (they're not just ordinary text made to look big and bold)
  •  links make sense by themselves (e.g. no instances of links that say "Click here" or "More...")
  •  tables are used for laying out tabular information and have proper headings and summaries
  •  visual presentation is defined in 'style sheets' and is not embedded in the pages
  •  browsealoud software enables text to be spoken
  •  text interpreted in to British Sign Language (BSL)

User Testing
We have also tested the site with a range of disabled people and have incorporated their feedback into the site design and construction.

If you have any problems with the accessibility of this site or suggestions for improvement then please do not hesitate to contact us.

We will always do what we can to make this site easier for everyone to use
