We recognise that many people will be accessing our sites and we are committed to provide a site that is accessible to the widest possible audience, irrespective of technology or ability.

We have worked with our sites developers (and shall continue to do so) to ensure that our sites are easy to navigate and use.

W3C Standards

With the exception of the matters mentioned below, the sites endeavour to comply with level A of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0.

Due to the technical specifications of the sites, the following aspects of the WCAG are not adhered to:

  • guideline 1.1.1- non-text content – the sites do not present the user with a text alternative for non-text content in all areas of the site;
  • guideline 2.4.1 – bypass Blocks – the sites have not deployed the mechanism to bypass blocks of content that are repeated on multiple web pages.

Accordingly, the sites adhere to all W3C Priority 1 checkpoints and all most all of the Priority 2 checkpoints as required by the Equality Act 2010. Put simply this covers the following:

  • providing text to accompany non-text elements (such as pictures or graphical buttons for navigating) for most areas of the site;
  • document organisation for sensibly ordered readability without the need for the accompanying style sheets;
  • ensuring all information conveyed through coloured content can be inferred or is available without colour;
  • clear and simple labels for the site contents;
  • clear delineated changed in the natural text of the documents to other content, such as captions.

Exceptions

We endeavour to comply with the WCAG in terms of accessibility and usability, however it is not always technically possible to do so in all areas of the sites.

Our efforts on a continuing basis  are to find mechanisms and solutions  to ensure that all areas of the sites are in compliance with the WCAG at the same level to ensure consistent accessibility. In the meantime, should you experience any difficulties accessing our sites, please contact us, so we can assist further.
