We are committed to ensuring our website complies with best practice, and current government and European recommendations. We have made every effort to make this website accessible and easy to use for everyone, no matter what browser you use, and whether or not you have any disabilities.
We aim to comply with the Web Accessibility Initiative's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WAI/WCG).
We've built all pages on this site to Hyper Text Mark-up Language XHTML 1.0 Transitional.
Wherever possible, we've written links so they make sense even out of context. This means screen readers can extract a comprehensive list of links on a page.
To us, accessibility covers not only people with disabilities, but also those who want to do business through the internet but have limited computing facilities or skills. In particular, we try to provide enough information for you to decide when to download (as we know people using dial-up facilities don't want a phone line tied up for hours, nor do those using Blackberries and other devices always want to download).
Maintaining an accessible site is an ongoing process, and we're continually working at it. If you have any problems please contact us so we can try to resolve them. If possible, include the web address of the relevant page(s).
