Accessibilty

Web accessibility refers to the inclusive practice of making websites usable for people of all abilities and disabilities. It aims to cater for users with auditory, speech, mobility, visual, cognitive or neurological disabilities, although websites adhering to the relevant guidelines are easier to read and edit for everyone.

We endeavor to meet the AA accessibility guidelines, as defined by the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI). If you do encounter any problems accessing information on our site, please contact us for assistance.
