Accessibility

We want our website to be accessible and easy to use for everyone.

Resizing the text

We have created some simple to use accessibility tools, accessed via the link at the top of every page. There is a feature for making body text larger and smaller. If you want to, you should be able to resize almost all of the text using your browser controls (a few bits of the text are actually graphic images and therefore have a fixed size).

Contrast (visual impairment)

We have created some simple to use accessibility tools, accessed via the link at the top of every page. There is a feature for switching between high contrast mode and normal mode. This will reloads the page using an alternative stylesheet.

You might find the links below helpful if you are unfamiliar with the controls built into your web browser.
