Web Accessibility Statement

Our commitment to accessibility

We have developed this website to ensure that it is usable by everybody, regardless of technology or ability. It is developed to be in compliance with WCAG 2.1, level A and AA of the World Wide Web Consortium W3C.

It uses code compliant with W3C standards for HTML and CSS, and it is optimised to display correctly in current browsers. While we try to ensure support for older browsers, it is not always possible to grant this support.

Adapting the website to your needs

We have made this website as usable as we can, but you might have a better experience by changing the settings on your computer or browser to suit your individual needs. This website has been designed to enable you to:

  • Increase and decrease font size.
  • Change colours and contrast.
  • Zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen.
  • Navigate the website using the keyboard.
  • Navigate using speech recognition software.

Most common browser include many features to make the browser and web content accessible to all users. For more details see the accessibility page of the following browsers:

Additional advice on how to make your device or browser easier to use if you have a disability can be found on the AbilityNet website.

Custom accessibility tools

In addition to the standard accessibility features your browser provides, we have developed a widget to switch between following settings with ease: Light Mode, Dark Mode, High Contrast and Greyscale.

This website has been tested extensively, however, there are some parts or components that are not fully accessible. We have identified them and include here the list of these issues:

  • Some of the images might be missing an alternative text.
  • Some links might not have text that is visible to screen readers.
