The platform we chose for our website has been designed to meet WCAG 2.1 accessibility criteria.
Fonts and colours
Our website used clear and simple fonts to make information easy to read. The website is responsive, this means you can zoom in to magnify text and images if you need to and it will not break the layout. You can zoom using the options in the ‘View’ menu of your browser, by pressing ‘Ctrl’ and ‘+’ or ‘-’ on a PC keyboard, or by pressing ‘cmd’ and ‘+’ or ‘-’ on a Mac keyboard.
The colours and use of colours on our website have been chosen to meet WCAG 2.1 recommended contrast ratios so that text is easy to read.
If you need to customise colours (or fonts) we recommend using the Firefox browser. Firefox provides an easy to understand guide on how to change your colours and fonts. You can download the latest version of the Firefox browser from their homepage.
Skip to content
Although not visible, if you’re using assistive technology or navigating with a keyboard, a ‘Skip to content’ link exists at the top of every page. This will allow you to skip past the site navigation and get to the page’s content quickly.
All pages on our website use the correct heading structure making them easier to navigate for all users as well as assistive technologies.
All images that are not purely decorative have alternative text. This text is written to describe what is pictured as clearly as possible.
All links on our website use text that makes sense in isolation so it is always clear where you will be taken.
