Website accessibility

Our website is maintained by volunteers with limited knowledge of website development, and built using third party technology we have limited ability to control.

  • pdfs where we can feature the content on a webpage.

We aim to eventually comply with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG 2.1) and will undertake a voluntary audit early 2020.
