We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:
- Zoom in up to 200% without the text spilling off the screen
- Navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
- Navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
- Listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver).
AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.
The network is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No.2) Accessibility Regulations by 23rd September 2020.
We have made the website text as simple as possible to understand. but we know some parts of this website may not be fully accessible.
e.g. if any third party videos are embedded that do not have audio description, or if document downloads are included that might not be fully accessible – include information here. Some images may need, but not have, ‘alt text’ and therefore cannot be read by screen readers. Some text used for links in page content may not convey enough meaning when addressed out of context to the surrounding content.
We are always looking to improve the accessibility of this website. If you find any problems that aren’t listed on this page or think we’re not meeting accessibility requirements please contact us.
