Our site is designed to be easy-to-use and accessible to anyone.
We have tried to keep to the following principles:
- clear and simple language that can be easily understood, avoiding the use of jargon and explaining any technical terms;
- plain page backgrounds to enable the text to be read easily;
- a colour contrast that enables people with colour blindness to distinguish between different types of content;
- manageable chunks of information on pages, with the key points summarised in the first paragraph and the use of bullet points to break up the text;
- headings to structure the text and make it easier to follow;
- images with descriptive titles and/or additional written detail; and
- easy-to-follow links that clearly identify the page the link goes to.
