This website is run by Optimat and Studio Beam Limited.

We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website, and find it useful.

For example we’d like you to be able to:

change colours, contrast levels and fonts
zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen

The guidelines have three levels of accessibility (A, AA and AAA) and we have chosen Level AA as the target for this website.

We will continue to assess the design of the website, and may make amendments in the future.
There may be areas where text is difficult to read over an image. 

On mobile you can use the screen reader function on most mobile phones.

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

We aim to make the website text as simple as possible to understand. Due to the nature of the subject there are longer specific words which are unavoidable. However, we are continuing to work on making sentences as clear and short as possible.

We aim to avoid using excessive graphics for the use of portraying information. We also aim to provide alternative (alt tags) text equivalents with all images.

If you need information on this website in a different format like accessible PDF, large print, easy read or audio recording, please email us. Or use the contact form on this website.
