What is web accessibility?

The Internet’s capacity to facilitate communication should be available to everyone. Web accessibility means:

  • removing obstacles that might prevent people with disability from accessing information online
  • enabling web sites to function with assistive and innovative technologies
  • ensuring that web sites can be accessed on lower speed Internet connections or with older technologies.

Our aim

Our aim is that this web site will achieve best practice in accessible web design within branding guidelines.
