Website accessibility

We are committed to making our site as accessible and easy to use as possible for all visitors. We took accessibility into account when we built and tested the site and will continue to review the content that is uploaded.

Accessibility standards

Our goal for the website is that all pages should meet the AA standards of the World Wide Web Consortium's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0.

A small number of pages, such as those with maps provided by Google, do rely on JavaScript and will not be accessible to users of some assistive technologies or users who have turned off JavaScript in their browsers.

PDF documents and accessibility

Users with a visual impairment may have trouble reading PDF files with older screen reader software. Adobe recommend you always have the latest Adobe Reader software installed to make PDF files easier to read.
