Technical information about this website’s accessibility

Compliance status

If your website is either partially compliant or not compliant WCAG 2.1 AA standard, you’ll need to explain why. This will be due to one or both of the following:

non-compliances – this means the content in question is in scope of the regulations, but there’s an accessibility problem with it

an exemption – this means the inaccessible content is out of scope of the regulations, or it’d be a disproportionate burden for you to make it accessible

This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to ‘the non-compliances’,  listed below:

Non-accessible content

The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

Some images do not have a text alternative, so people using a screen reader cannot access the information. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 (non-text content). We plan to add text alternatives for all images by September 2021. When we publish new content we’ll make sure our use of images meets accessibility standards.

Disproportionate burden

None at this time that we are aware of.

Navigation and accessing information

None at this time that we are aware of.

Interactive tools and transactions

No issues at this time that we are aware of.

Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations

None at this time that we are aware of.

PDFs and other documents

The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services. Any new PDFs we publish will meet accessibility standards.

Live video

We do not use Live video on this site.
