Policies and Accessibility

We are committed to producing accessible and usable online services.


We engaged the services of Edward Robertson Digital Design to assist with the layout and functionality of this site. We would welcome your feedback so that we can check usability and accessibility.

This site should function in most up-to-date browsers, regardless of platform.

How to change your browser settings

Although the site allows you to change the text size and the contrast of the foreground and background colours, the ability to change the way your internet browser displays this site is better controlled within the browser itself.

The BBC has created very useful tutorials, which you can find below.

Options for changing font size

The option for resizing the text is displayed on the top left menu of the website.

  • The first A reduces the text size down to 80%
  • The centre A keeps the text size a 100%
  • The last A expands the text size to 120%
