This page has some tips on things you can do to make the website easier to use.  

It also includes information on what we are doing to make the website more accessible.

Easy Read information

Our website includes some information in Easy Read. You can find Easy Read information on pages that have this button:

We are working hard to have Easy Read information on every page. If there is any specific information you need in more accessible formats, please contact us.

Making the text bigger 

You can make the text on this website bigger by using the ‘Zoom’ option in your web browser: 

  • On Windows, hold down ‘Control’ and press +.

We are also working to include audio on our website. This includes ‘Text to speech’ buttons which can read out the text for you.  

PDF documents

In most cases we provide Microsoft Word versions of PDF documents.
