If you have any difficulties using this site, please Contact Us and let us know - we will do our best to fix it.
At the top of our website, you will see Accessibility Tools. This option is displayed across each of our pages, and is there to help you. This enables you to choose between contrasts and enlarge text if needed.
Soft or high contrast
Changing the website contrast means that you can view it in different sets of colours, depending on your preference. Some people find it easier to read a webpage if there is a higher contrast between the background and the text.
There are two options - soft or high contrast. Soft contrast will give you a medium colour contrast between the background and the text. High contrast will give you a stronger contrast.
You can navigate around our website by using your keyboard, rather than your mouse. Some people have restricted mobility, and find using their keyboard much easier.
The tab key allows you to move forward on each page through menus, links and text boxes. Pressing the shift and tab key together allows you to move back. The arrow keys will allow you to scroll up, down, left, or right.
When you land on a drop down box with a series of options, you can use the Alt key and the up or down arrow to make your selection, before pressing Enter.
If you are distracted by our scrolling images, we have made sure that you can pause or stop them. You can choose to change to the next image when you are ready.
You can translate the content of this website to a language of your choice.
