Technical information about this website’s accessibility
As part of our commitment to accessibility we are required to publish where we know there are issues with our website.
This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances listed below.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
PDFs and other documents
Some of our PDFs and Word documents are essential to providing our services, but may not be structured so they’re accessible to a screen reader. This does not meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.2 (Name, role value).
We are working to either fix these or replace them with accessible HTML pages. Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish should meet accessibility standards.
