Inbuilt Accessibility Features

There are many factors which make up an accessible website including colours used, text, layout and images. We endeavoured to cater for all devices with a responsive design, which displays clearly across tablets, laptops, PCs and smartphones.  

We acknowledge that we haven’t been able to include some accessibility features in the site, such as dark mode for people who would prefer a different contrast set up for reading the text. We hope to also include a built in increase and decrease text option on the site in the near future. Please review the instructions below to increase font size in your browser window.

N.B. When following the steps below, you are zooming in on the page rather than changing the font size chosen by the page’s creator. As a result, the font size and type remain at their default values when you print a document or page from the Internet.
