This website has been awarded the Shaw Trust 'Accessible' rating. This means the site has achieved a high level of accessibilty. Please see the following link to our Audit Authentication Award: http://www.stwas.org.uk/lso001/lso.html
We aim to provide a website that is accessible to all of its visitors. The Disability Discrimination Act of 1995 states unambiguously that private and public sector web sites must be accessible with respect to the provision of services online.
The layout takes into account users who are visually impaired or have difficulties using a mouse. It has been developed to be compatible with popular screen reading software, and can be navigated easily using just a keyboard.
Please contact us if you wish to give us feedback so we can continue to improve the accessibility of this web site.
We strive to conform, at a minimum, to Level Double-A compliance as specified by the W3C's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0. This also involves implementing a number selected Priority 3 checkpoints.
In general, the site conforms to WAI Level Double-A rating where HTML is used. Where documents are made available in other formats such as Adobe Acrobat, conformance has not been achieved.
