We recognise the importance of providing a website that is accessible to everyone, no matter what their needs.  This statement outlines the accessibility features of this website.  If you have any comments or suggestions about any aspect of the accessibility of this site please do not hesitate to contact us.

We comply with Priority 1 and where possible Priority 2 Guidelines of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.  We are continually looking at making improvements to meet these guidelines, and our website has been designed with the following accessibility guidelines in mind:-

1.      The site uses a style sheet and relative font sizes on all text with the exception of graphical text.  The font size of text can be increased or decreased in size by using the “view” option in the browser.

2.      All images where appropriate have an alternative text attribute.  This means that when an image is conveying important information its content is described with an alternative text.  Where an image is used for decorative purpose the alternative text attributable will be left blank.  No information is exclusively conveyed using colour.

3.      Our pages are designed so that they fit well on most screen sizes by dynamically resizing to the available space. This means that our website is accessible on most mobile devices.

4.      A site map exists to provide information about the layout of the website.
