Accessibility and translation functions on this website
We aim to make our website usable for as many people as possible so that everyone has a good experience when on our site. We completed a website accessibility audit in 2021 and made changes to our website so that it's as close to WCAG 2.0 AA standard as we can get it. We've also had ReciteMe accessibility tools on our website since 2018. Anyone using this website can use the ReciteMe accessibility tools.

Limitations on this website
Where possible we've added alternative text to our images, however we have been unable to apply this to all images.
Most of our videos do not have subtitles or audio descriptions. Where we have used third-party video content, we have not been able to control if they have subtitles or audio descriptions.
Content added to forms
The accessibility functions will not work with the content you add to forms. If you complete a form, it will not be able to translate or read out the content you have added to the forms.
