Accessibility

We are committed to ensuring that our website is digitally accessibility to everyone, especially people with disabilities.

We are committed to improving the user experience for everyone while ensuring we adhere to The Public Sector Bodies Accessibility Regulations 2018.

We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)

If you have a disability and need help, AbilityNet can provide advice on making your device easier to use when you are accessing information on the web.
