We want everyone to be able to enjoy our website. That’s why we've designed it with accessibility in mind. We hope we’ve got it right, but do contact us if there are more improvements you think we could make - we really do welcome feedback.
Here’s some of the things we’ve done to improve accessibility to the site:
- colours and contrast meet the WCAG 2.0 AA standard
- all images have alt attribute text or if they are purely decorative this is blank
- all links make sense out of context
- skip to main content and skip to navigation like are provided at the start of every page
- all form fields have associated label text
- a site map is provided as an alternative navigation aid
- Aria Landmark roles have been applied for: banner, navigation, search, main, contentinfo and the duplicate mobile navigation markup has an Aria role of 'hidden'
