Accessibility Statement

This website is designed and built to W3C accessibility standards. This website allows equal access to people with disabilities using technologies other than standard web browsers, such as screen readers.

We believe that we should make our website’s content and functionality equally available to all visitors. We have therefore designed and built this site to be as usable and accessible as possible so that you can easily find the information you are looking for.

We are continually striving to improve the accessibility of our website. If you experience any problems using any part of this site, or have suggestions on how we could improve accessibility, please email

Keyboard Shortcuts (Access Keys)

Most browsers allow you to use keyboard shortcuts to jump directly to important parts of the site. The shortcuts available on this site are listed below. In most browsers you will have to hold down another key, such as Alt (in most Windows browsers) or Control (in most Macintosh browsers), while you press the keys listed below.

9 – Accessibility Statement (this page)

As well as jumping directly to the main level pages above you can also access any link within that page by pressing the TAB button until the link is highlighted. You can then go through to that link by pressing ‘enter’.


If your browser can display text in different sizes you should be able to change the text to a size you can read comfortably. In Microsoft Internet Explorer use Text Size in the View menu; other browsers have different methods.

All layout is controlled by Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). The site is also usable in browsers that do not support CSS. If you are using a CSS-capable browser and find any parts difficult to read or use you may find it helps to disable style sheets.

Pages on this site use structural markup, allowing browsers and assistive devices to help you find the information you are looking for more easily. For instance heading tags are used throughout, so if your browser includes an outline mode or allows you to jump directly to headings you can use these features.

Scripting & Plugins

This site is designed to be usable without any client-side scripting (such as JavaScript) or browser plugins (such as Macromedia Flash), but in some places these technologies are used to enhance the user experience when available. Occasionally scripts or plugins may interfere with browser accessibility features and assistive devices; if your browser does not seem to be working as normal on our site it may help to disable scripting and/or plugins.
