Accessibility and site help
We're committed to making sure everyone has access to our websites. We design them with these accessibility guidelines in mind:
- We make sure that navigation throughout the site works in a consistent way
- We use a standard web font to make it easy for all to read. In most cases, the size of the font can be adjusted according to your needs, using standard browser and operating system options
- All the images are given 'alt text' alternatives except those which are only decorative; the tags for these are left blank
- We never use colour as the only way to convey information
- All links have been written in order to make sense when read out of context.
We have developed our own accessibility guidelines, which take into account standards and accessibility best practice from a number of sources.
If you have difficulty accessing the site or have any comments or feedback, please do not hesitate to get in touch. You can call us on 08000 84 28 88 or +44(0) 1534 885 000 if calling from overseas, available 9am - 5pm UK time, Monday to Friday. Calls will be recorded and may be monitored.
