How to get the most accessible experience from this website
Our website can be viewed on a range of different screen sizes and the size of text can be changed to suit different people. We have also included a search facility, site map and useful links page to help people find information more easily.
Most images on this site are accompanied by a brief alt-text tag that identifies the image or its function. If you are using a graphic browser, alt-text tags are visible only if the browser's automatic image-loading feature is turned off.
Every effort is made to ensure that all hyperlinks to external websites and documentation open in a new window to aid navigation and avoid confusion.
Using your web browser, you can change the size of the text on this website. You can also make other helpful changes in your browser, as well as within your computer generally.
We are always looking for ways to help people get the best experience from this website. If there is information you think should be included on this page, or if you experience any problem accessing the site then please contact us.
Please note: for advice on what information to include when you contact us, we recommend you read Contacting Organisations about Inaccessible Websites.
