We want to provide a website that’s accessible to the widest possible audience.

We aim for a consistent and high level of usability across the website. We follow best practice accessibility guidelines. We engage with disabled, non-disabled and older people throughout development. This helps us understand user needs and make sure we meet them. We want you to have the best experience possible, so we’ve added accessibility features to support this. For example, skip navigation links.

We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.

What to do if you can’t access parts of this website

Wherever possible, we’re changing content from documents into web content because it’s more accessible. Where we can’t do this, we’re working through documents to make them accessible. If we can’t make them accessible, we will add them to this statement as an exception and explain why.

We want everyone to get the best experience from this website. We’re working hard to raise digital accessibility issues across the organisation. Please let us know if you:
