ACCESSIBILITY AND USABILITY OF THE SITE
We have taken reasonable and proportionate steps to make our site as accessible and usable as possible for all.
This policy does not cover any other site that we link from this website.
OUR SITE’S CODE
Using your web browser, you can change the size of text on our site. You can also make other helpful changes in your browser, as well as within your computer generally.
Our site can be viewed on a range of different screen sizes and the size of text can be changed to suit different people. We have also included useful links to help people find information more easily. We have taken efforts to ensure that hyperlinks to external websites open in a new window to avoid confusion and aid navigation.
At the time of launch, our site has the following limitations which will make it difficult to access for some users:
- Custom font which will gracefully fallback to a safe web font when customs fonts have been disabled.
- Please ensure that you are using a modern, up-to-date and compatible browser to view our site.

If you are a blind or partially sighted user, we recommend you use the RNIB website at https://www.rnib.org.uk/Pages/Home.aspx for specialist advice, such as the availability of alternative screen readers, screen magnifiers, software and other devices to make using a computer easier.
