Website accessibility statement

Accessibility features

Skip to content link

We provide an invisible 'Skip to content' link at the top of each page to allow users to bypass menu and header information, and go straight to the beginning of the content on the page. This is to help keyboard-only and screen reader users who would otherwise have to navigate a long list of navigation links, logos, site searches, and other elements before arriving at the main content.

Access keys

We haven't used access keys as they can often interfere with the default keyboard shortcuts of modern browsers. The content is easily tab-navigable and screen-reader friendly. See how you can adapt the website to meet your needs.
