AccessibilityMaking our website open to all

We are fully committed to making our services accessible to everyone, and that is as true for our website as it is for everything else.

As such, we have incorporated a number of features designed to assist navigation through the site both to partially sighted users and those who wish to navigate without the use of a mouse. The site is built using cascading style sheets to create the visual layout, but if your browser does not support them, or they are disabled, the content of each page will still be visible All images and animations on the site have alternative descriptions; non-illustrative images (for example, spacers) have blank alternatives so they can still be distinguised from important content.

If you encounter any problems accessing the site, please contact us, and we will do everything we can to assist you.
