Accessibility

This page explains how we have tried to make this website accessible to all users and how we plan to increase accessibility in the future.

Our website is built to meet W3C A standards for accessibility. This involves using clear labelling so users know where a link or button is taking them and the type and size of documents they are downloading. We have also used a clear design that takes account of people with visual impairments.

We've attempted to use Plain English throughout the site to increase accessibility.

PDF files

Many of our reports and publications are currently only available as PDF (Portable Document Format) files.

Text size

You can increase the size of the text on our web pages by reconfiguring your web browser, as follows: Select 'View' in your browser menu, then 'select text size/larger' or 'increase font'.

Colour

We do not use colour to convey vital information.

Images

All relevant images have text descriptions explaining what the image is about. This description will be read out by screen readers, and will be displayed if you hover your cursor over the image.

External links

All links to other websites will open up a new browser window. (Relevant links state that they will open in a new window). To return to the Trust’s website after following an external link, you would need to close the new browser window.
