This website has been designed to be accessible to as many people as possible. If you have difficulty using our site please let us know and we will do our best to rectify this in future maintenance and development.
Following the publication of PAS 78 Guide to good practice in commissioning accessible websites, developed in conjunction with the Disability Rights Commission (DRC) and our obligations under the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA), this website is working towards full compliance with the consensus on accessibility best practice.
On the current version of the site we have attempted to comply specifically with: Priority 1 and Priority 2 guidelines of the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 (WCAG). The elements covered by the Priority 3 guidelines are not, in most cases used by our sites, however as the sites develops such functions we will aim for compliance at this level.
