Accessibility

The website aims to reach AA standard in line with the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) version 2.0.

Although efforts to cover as wide a range of issues are made, we understand that we are not able to address the needs of people with all types, degrees, and combinations of disability.

Language and magnification

Our website allows users to make some changes to the website to help you find and understand information. At the top of the page you will see a drop down menu that allows you to select from a wide range of languages. There is also an option to magnify the text. To the left of the drop down menu are three circles with and 'A' in it. If you click the black circle, the text will enlarge. Clicking the grey box will revert the text to the standard size, and clicking the white box will shrink the text.
