We aim to make this web site as accessible to everyone as possible, no matter what browser you choose to use, and whether or not you have any disabilities. Where applicable the design, content and site coding broadly conform to all Priority 1 web accessibility guidelines as set out by the World Wide Web Consortium.


This site uses cascading style sheets (CSS) for all visual layout . If your browser does not support stylesheets, the use of structured mark up should ensure that page content is still readable and clearly structured.


To make it easier to read this website, all text has been made fully scaleable using CSS (Cascading Style Sheets). You should be able to adjust the text by looking for the appropriate option in your browser preferences.


Care has been taken to ensure colours are generally of strong contrast for on-screen reading. However, visually impaired users may ‘override’ the default colours using a custom stylesheet if they wish. No information on the site is solely dependant on colour to be intelligible.


All pages on this site have been designed to render correctly on all major web browsers including Safari, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla, Netscape and Opera.


We have also tried to follow best practice principles so that every user can find the information they need. For example: navigation menus are available on every page so you always know where you are. The site map gives an overview of the content on this site and where to find it.


The use of JavaScript has been kept to an absolute minimum. Where it is used then steps have been taken to try and ensure that pages and processes are still accessible should Javascript be turned off.
