Accessibility

We have tried to design our website so that it is accessible for everyone.

If you have accessibility issues, you may find the guidance from AbilityNet and the BBC on how to configure your computer settings to suit your needs will make your visit to our website easier:

Browsers

A web browser is the software you use to access the internet and it is always advisable to have the most up to date version of the web browser you use:

  • you will be able to browse the internet much faster
  • you’ll see more features on many websites
  • your computer will be more secure

For more information on web browsers and how to upgrade, please read the GOV.UK guidance on Browsers.

PDFs

We want all of our customers to be able to access all content, including PDF documents, on our website.

We are currently making sure all our documents (including pdfs) from the 23rd September onwards are accessible.  Over time, we will endeavour to convert and make previous documents accessible.  In the meantime, if you find a document that you wish to view that isn’t accessible, please contact us.

The user guide below provides help on accessing PDF documents for blind and visually impaired users of screen reading technology.
