Accessibility

Inclusiveness is more important than rules – accessibility is as much about ease of use as it is about guidelines.

This website has been designed to be as accessible as possible, irrespective of the browsing device being used. However, if you have trouble using the site, please let us know so that we can try to fix the problem.

Access for all

Making an accessible website is an essential element of web design. This website generally follows the relevant guidelines of the Web Accessibility Initiative’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 1.0.

However, accessibility is about judgement as much as conformance. We consider the accessibility implications of the design, whether covered by a guideline or not.

Web standards

This website has been designed to web standards. As a result it will support all modern web browsers.

Web standards are published by the World Wide Web Consortium.
