Global accessibility standards
Our website has been built using code that is compliant with the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) standards for HTML and CSS. This means our website should display correctly in current browsers and that any future browsers will also display it correctly.
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) is a global technical standard from W3C, which means websites have met a set of basic goals to make content more accessible to visitors with a disability.
WCAG sets out four principles of accessibility: perceivable, operable, understandable and robust. Each principle has 12 guidelines and there are three levels of success criteria for meeting them: A, AA, and AAA.
In accordance with the 'Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018' accessibility regulations; public sector websites or mobile apps are required to meet the international WCAG 2.1 AA accessibility standard
