Accessibility Statement

We have designed this website in accordance with best design practice and have tried to make it as accessible as possible. In particular, we have implemented a number of accessibility features which, along with the accessibility features built in to the browser you are using, should help to make this website accessible to all user groups.

Accessibility features

This website contains the following accessibility features:


Images have alt text where they add to the comprehension of the page. The alt attribute is an alternative for the image and describes its purpose.


By default, all text is set in a relative sized font. This means that you can resize the text if you want or need to from within your browser.

Internet Explorer - use the View > Text Size menu.
Netscape 6 and 7 - use the View > Text Zoom menu.
Opera - use the Zoom selector.
Firefox - use the View > Increase Text Size option.
Chrome - use the View > Text Zoom menu
Safari - use the View > Make Text Bigger option.

This site uses Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) for visual layout.

If your browser or browsing device does not support stylesheets at all, the use of structured markup ensures that the content of each page is still readable and clearly structured.

In addition to the accessibility measures that we have included in this website, most web browsers will usually allow you to adjust the way in which webpages are displayed. Please see your browser's help features for more information.
