Technical information about this website’s accessibility

This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard and was tested using a quality assurance tool, SiteImprove, to identify accessibility issues.

Some images used purely to illustrate blog posts may not have appropriate alternative text and such posts will not be compliant with the ‘WCAG 1.1.1: Text alternatives’ guideline.

Many of our older PDFs don’t meet accessibility standards: for example, they may not be marked up so they’re accessible to a screen reader.  These older PDFs will not be compliant with the ‘WCAG 1.4.1: Non-text Content’ and ‘WCAG 2.4.2: Page titled’ guidelines.
