​This website is currently compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard.

Some of our older PDF documents may not meet accessibility standards -for example, they may not be structured so they’re accessible to a screen reader.

Non compliance with the accessibility regulations

We will do all we can to identify content that is non-compliant and where possible provide an alternative format upon request.

When we publish new content, we will make sure our use of images meets accessibility standards and our website is regularly reviewed to ensure all the pages are compliant. If you find a page that you are having difficulty accessing its content, please contact us and we will assist you in gaining access to the content where possible.
