Clear labelling

We use clear labels so visitors know where a link or button is taking them and the type and size of documents they are downloading. We have also used a clear design that takes account of people with visual impairments.

Plain language

We’ve attempted to use plain English throughout the site to make the information easy to understand.

Magnify the screen

If increasing the text size doesn’t make the text easy to see, you could try magnifying your screen. Most computer operating systems allow you to do this.


We don’t use colour alone to convey vital information.


All relevant images have alternative text descriptions explaining what the image is about. This description will be read out by screen readers and will be displayed if you hover your cursor over the image.
