This accessibility policy sets out information which details the availability of Our Website to users with different needs. This accessibility policy covers our aims and approach to accessibility, the core functions a user of Our Website should be able to perform and what practical steps we take and we are doing in practice to improve the accessibility of Our Website.

Introduction

We are committed to ensuring our online products and services are accessible to everyone; providing an accessible website has a positive effect on general usability and we believe that websites that are accessible and usable by everyone, benefit everyone.

We recognise that many different forms of disability affect access to Our Website. A proactive approach to improving Our Website has been adopted.

Approach

Our approach to accessibility is to attempt to make Our Website easy to use and understand for all users, including by the customisation of computing devices. It is recognised that not just disabled people are affected by issues of accessibility. Our Website webpages intend to be clear with easy to follow content.

We will continue to review, test and modify Our Website (and any future releases of Our Website) for web accessibility issues and aim to ensure that this is an on-going company commitment.

Using Our Website

Our Website also includes:

  • consistent navigation and page layouts
  • optimised webpages and images to load quickly and smoothly
  • foreground and background colours, which have been checked to ensure sufficient contrast
  • clear images
  • content which is written clearly, concisely, free of jargon and in plain English
  • clear page headings
  • ‘calls to action’ which are highlighted and/or which are presented in a different colour font or are underlined
  • symbols (e.g. >) which are used in context and for their semantic use
  • forms which are navigable using a keyboard
  • submit buttons on all forms
  • cascading style sheets to control layout and presentation

We use JavaScript (a scripting language widely used in website development) to deliver an enhanced user experience for things like rollover menus and conditional content visibility. Google has further information on how to enable JavaScript(external link).

Customer involvement and contact details

We welcome the feedback of users of Our Website with special needs. We will seek in the future to involve, as appropriate, those users in the development and testing of new services and content.
