We want our site to be easy to access for everyone and we have worked hard to get our site's level of accessibility in line with the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) and Government guidelines. We can confirm that the website has passed level 'A' of accessibility awarded by Bobby, for the majority of our pages on this site. We are working towards this level for the remainder of the pages.
Bobby is a system created by the Center for Applied Special Technology (CAST) to help web page authors to identify and repair significant barriers to access by people with disabilities and we are working hard to improve the site even further.
We have also passed Section 508 compliance for the majority of our pages on this site. Section 508 is the US Goverments standard for federal government web accessibility it is Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act.
