Accessibility

We are committed to making this website accessible and easy to use for everyone.

In order to improve the accessibility of our website, we have carried out an accessibility audit and, as a result, high priority work is underway to re-platform this site.

Our updated website will be built to Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) version 2.1 Success Criteria at Level 2 (AA), in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

Our new site is due imminently and will significantly improve usability.

Non-accessible content

Some of our PDFs and Word documents are essential to providing our services.

The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services.

Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.

Reporting accessibility problems 

Maintaining an accessible website is an ongoing process and we are continually working to offer a user-friendly experience.  

If you find any problems not listed on this page or think we’re not meeting accessibility requirements, contact us using our online contact form.
