This website allows browser-based font resizing, ensuring that site visitors can enlarge the font size without breaking the page layout in any way.
We believe that it is important to make our website accessible to all potential users. With this in mind we have worked hard to improve the website for people with all disabilities and impairments. We have ensured the availability of "alt text" where images are used and a simple and clear approach to online layout and colour contrast, for example, black text on a white background.
Our site works well in text-only browsers and fits the criteria for people with visual impairment. Additionally, care is taken when creating new pages to ensure that navigation is simple, links are accurate and images are clear. We try to ensure that articles on the site are written in plain English in order that people of all ages and abilities can easily read the content.
This website uses only relative font sizes, compatible with the user-specified "text size" option in visual browsers. If your browser or browsing device does not support style sheets, the content of each page is still readable.
It is structured with valid 1.1 XHTML and semantic markup. Cascading style sheets are used for visual layout.
We hope that this makes the site accessible to as many users as possible and we recognise the need to continually improve.
