Website accessibility

We make every effort to ensure is easy to use and accessible for everyone.

This includes:

  • Using colours that provide maximum contrast between foreground and background items.  Most elements have a contrast ratio of 7:1 or above.
  • Using plain backgrounds to improve readability of text
  • Images are assigned an alt-text attribute where appropriate, which describes the contents or function of the item
  • Hyperlinks are standard blue colour across the website, except in header and footer.  They are underlined for clarity and links to external websites will include a icon.
  • Responsive design allows website pages re-size according to the device being used

Improvements we are making

  • We will be introducing a tool to this website to assist with accessibility and usability
  • We will replace older pdf files with accessible versions, or replace them with HTML pages
