Accessibility Feedback

As part of our commitment to digital accessibility we continue to make changes to improve the user experience for everyone and apply the relevant accessibility standards.

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) defines requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA.

Wherever possible, we aim to adhere to level AA of the WCAG guidelines, which states that sites should be:

  • Perceivable – Information and user interface components must be presentable to users in ways they can perceive.
  • Operable – User interface components and navigation must be operable.
  • Understandable – Information and the operation of user interface must be understandable.
  • Robust – Content must be robust enough that it can be interpreted reliably by a wide variety of user agents, including assistive technologies.

As part of our efforts to achieve WCAG AA compliance, we use Monsido as an ongoing monitoring service. We welcome your feedback on the accessibility of the website. If you have experienced any accessibility barriers while using any part of our website please let us know.
