We are committed to making our website as accessible, readable and usable as possible. This means you should be able to:

  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts

  • navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
  • listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)

Technical Information about this Website's Accessibility


Some links don’t make sense when read on their own (for example 'here' or 'click here'). On some pages the same link text is used for links going to different destinations, so people might not know the difference. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.4.4 (link purpose - in context).

Some of our link buttons have insufficient colour contrast between the link text and the background. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.4.3 (contrast - minimum).
