Accessibility Statement

Most pages on this site use the Open Source Content Management System Plone and have been designed to be completely accessible and usable, working in accordance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (v1.0). This includes such features as 'Skip to Content' and 'Skip to Navigation' links. We have also endeavoured to achieve AA accessibility as measured against version 1.0 of the WCAG. We are aware however, that a number of the checkpoints of the WCAG are subjective — and although we believe  that we have met them squarely, there may be instances where interpretation may vary. If you have any issues with accessibility on this site,  please contact us using the help/feedback form.
