We are committed to making our website accessible to all.

We're constantly working towards improving our website to ensure no one is left out or left behind, including those with visual, hearing, cognitive or motor impairments.

In building our current website, we follow Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities and have three levels of accessibility (A, AA and AAA). We strive to achieve Level AA compliance.


We expect that all our users will be able to:

  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts

  • zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen

  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard

  • navigate most of the website using speech recognition software

  • listen to most of the website using a screen reader

There are some areas of our website that do not currently fully meet the Level AA criteria because of certain non-compliances and exemptions. We are in the process of conducting a full accessibility audit and we will update this page with the most up-to-date information.

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.
