We aim to make our website as easy to use and accessible as possible. We comply with our own accessible information policy to not only meet the minimum legal requirements, but also to achieve the highest standards possible.


This website has also been designed to comply with the international web accessibility standards issued by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) as part of their Web Accessibility Initiative.

All reasonable efforts have been made to ensure that top level and main content pages are compliant to a minimum of AA of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 standards.

We are always keen to hear about ways we can improve the services we provide. If you are having any difficulties using this website, please email our webmaster.
