Website Accessibility Standards

To allow us to make our website a positive space for all users we are working on making our website content accessible for all.

We are currently in the process of:

  • updating our images to ensure they include ‘alternative text’
  • ensuring our videos include captions
  • updating our page colours so background and foreground colours have sufficient contrast ratios

Additionally, our social media pages moving forward will include Alternative Text and captions on videos (where needed).

Whilst we strive to make changes and progress past the accepted guidelines and standards for accessibility, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website. We are continually looking at ways that we can enhance user experience, and bring all areas of our website up to the same level of accessibility. Should you experience difficulties please don’t hesitate to contact us.
