We work hard to ensure all of our users are able to access the information they need on our website.


We are aware of the types of adaptive technology used by people with disabilities and are redesigning pages across our website to ensure compatibility with as many of these systems as possible.


Changes include keeping text clear, formatting layouts and tables, and making sure links adequately describe where they go. We are rebuilding our websites to meet the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) Content Accessibility Guidelines set by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and we aim, wherever possible, to ensure we conform to "Double-A" standards. You can find out more about the initiative on W3C's website.


If you come across a part of our site that is difficult to use, please tell us about it. We intend to keep improving our accessibility – so help us to do it by sending us your comments.
