We are committed to accessibility
We ensure that all the content on our website is accessible to everyone. We have built in accessibility features throughout the website in accordance with WCAG 2.1 guidelines.
Viewing the site
Our website is compatible with a wide range of screen sizes, and text throughout the site can be resized to suit every individual’s needs. Screen reading technology is also supported through skip links, accessible names on visible links, as well as buttons and alt attributes on images. Headings are also ordered in descending order.
Visually, our website has been designed with accessibility in mind from the beginning. Background and foreground colours have a high contrast ratio,
You can change the settings you need to using your web browser and browser zooming is enabled on all devices
Conforming to web standards
To build our website, we have adhered to accessibility best practices laid out by Bootstrap. This means our HTML markup is based on the Bootstrap framework and follows WCAG 2.1 guidelines, using ARIA attributes, logical structural markup, and visually hidden interactive controls.

HTML is constructed with semantics in mind and is tested with Google Chrome’s “Lighthouse” tool during development. At the time of writing the accessibility rating in Lighthouse scores 100% based on an internal service page.
