Access keys

An Access key is a keyboard shortcut that replaces the need to use a mouse for navigation. In most Windows browsers you can press ALT + an access key; and Macintosh users can press Control + ALT + an access key. Then, if necessary, press Enter to activate the link.
 
The following Access keys are enabled throughout the website:
1 : Jump to Home page
3 : Jump to Site Map
8 : Jump to Site Terms
9 : Contact us
0 : Jump to Accessibility Statement page (this page)
c : Go to Main Content (on any page)
n : Go to Primary Navigation (on any page)
 
These Access keys are based on UK Government guidelines. We have attempted to avoid conflicts with commonly used operating system shortcuts.

Accessibility statement

We have undertaken to use our knowledge and understanding of the ways in which different people access the Internet, to develop a website that is clear and simple for everybody to use. If you have any problems using our website please contact us.

Validation

We have used XHTML 1.0 and CSS that conforms to specification, as laid out by the W3C because we believe that usability and accessibility must have a solid foundation. If anything on this website does not validate correctly, please contact the Site Administration.

We have also endeavoured to achieve AAA accessibility as measured against version 1.0 of the WCAG. We are aware however, that a number of the checkpoints of the WCAG are subjective – and although we are sure that we have met them squarely, there may be instances where interpretation may vary.
