This website has been tested for Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1 level AA) compliance in October 2022.

Images on our website have alternative text attributes (alt text). This means when an image is used on a webpage to convey information its content is also described in the alt text, so the image can be understood by text browsers and screen readers.

If an image is used for simply decorative purposes, the text attribute for the image is left empty (no alt text is added) in line with accepted best practice.

If you need information on this website in a different format like an accessible PDF, large print, easy read, audio recording or Braille, please email or call 0300 304 0664.

We’re always looking to improve the accessibility of this website. If you have any issues accessing this site, or think we’re not meeting accessibility requirements, please email or call 0300 304 0664.
