This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 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
The following items do not comply with the WCAG 2.1 AA success criteria:

  • All non-text content that is presented to the user might not have a text alternative
    1.1.1 Non-text Content
  • Information, structure, and relationships conveyed through presentation may not be programmatically determined or may not be available in text.
    1.3.1 Info and Relationships
  • Instructions provided for understanding and operating content may rely solely on sensory characteristics of components such as shape, colour, size, visual location, orientation, or sound
    1.3.3 Sensory Characteristics
  • Verification is needed to determine if colour is not used as the only visual means of conveying information, indicating an action, prompting a response, or distinguishing a visual element.
    1.4.1 Use of Color
  • There may not be sufficient colour contrast between font and background colours, especially where the text size is very small
    1.4.3 - Contrast (Minimum)
  • All functionality of the content may not be operable through a keyboard interface
    2.1.1 Keyboard
  • Since all functionality of the content may not be operable using a keyboard interface, then focus may not be moved away from that component using only a keyboard interface, and, if it requires more than unmodified arrow or tab keys or other standard exit methods, there may not be any instruction provided for the user for moving focus away
    2.1.2 No Keyboard Trap
  • A mechanism may not be available to bypass blocks of content that are repeated on multiple Web pages
    2.4.1 Bypass Blocks
  • The purpose of each link may not be determined from the link text alone or from the link text together with its programmatically determined link context.
    2.4.4 Link Purpose (In Context)
  • The default human language of each Web page may not be programmatically determined.
    3.1.1 Language of Page
  • There are pop up’s that appear without warning
    3.2.2 On Input
  • Some elements may not have complete start and end tags or elements may contain duplicate attributes.
    4.1.1 Parsing
  • For all user interface components (including but not limited to: form elements, links and components generated by scripts), the name and role can be programmatically determined; states, properties, and values that can be set by the user may not be programmatically set; and notification of changes to these items may not be available to user agents, including assistive technologies.
    4.1.2 Name, Role, Value

Disproportionate burden
We do not at the current time claim the non-conformances are a disproportionate burden to fix. We are currently assessing ways of fixing the issues, once that work is complete, we may reassess the issue. Particularly with some of our legacy content.

What we’re doing to improve accessibility

  • Any future updates to the website will address key areas and adjust accessibility.
  • The accessibility statement will be updated with each major update
  • ​We would like editors of the website to be fully conversant with best practice
