Accessibility refers to the inclusive practice of making websites adaptable and usable by people of all abilities and disabilities and using all types of devices. When digital services are correctly designed, developed and edited, all users can have equal access to information and functionality. Our website aims to achieve the following standards:
- Accessibility: will conform to WIA Triple A guidelines where possible and AA throughout.

- The site must provide compatibility with keyboard access where possible
