Web Accessibility Statement

Whilst creating this web site we have made every effort to ensure that all pages are accessible to everyone according to the W3C WAI guidelines. Whilst many W3C standards remain intentionally vague and therefore subject to individual judgement, some can be automatically tested. We have run a variety of recognised automated tests and reviewed all pages created. We have made every effort to comply with the accessibility standards and guidelines from the W3C WAI to at least priority 2, though we recognise that owing to the many different interpretations of the guidelines, and the nature of the information being represented, there may be instances where this may be seen not to be the case.

If you have any difficulty accessing any part of the site, please let us know and we will do our best to rectify the problem immediately.

W3C Standards:

We have made every effort to ensure the following:

Content has been separated from visual design and cascading style sheets (CSS) are used for visual layout.

Links are written to make sense out of context.
