Accessibility

We're committed to making our website as accessible as possible.

In order to do this we've designed and developed our website so that as many people as possible can use it (including those with visual, hearing, cognitive or motor impairments) in order to meet the requirements under the Disability Discrimination Act.

This means that the site can be navigated using the tab button and by pre-defined access keys.

Access Keys

We provide access key shortcuts for keyboard-only users. Access keys are keyboard shortcuts that allow you to go directly to specific parts of this site. They are very useful for anyone who does not use a pointing device, such as a mouse.
