  • URLs on the site are human friendly.
  • We try to use clear and simple language.
  • We have tested the colours we use in the design for contrast.
  • The main text of our printed documents are available on the site, either as accessible HTML or in other formats such as PDF.

Please contact us if you have questions, if you are having difficulties using the site, or would like to know more about what we are doing to make our websites accessible.
