Technical information about this website’s accessibility

As part of our commitment to accessibility we are required to publish where we know there are issues with our website.
This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the following issues.


Some of our forms have duplicate field labels, making it difficult to identify their purpose. This does not meet WCAG 2.1 AA success criterion 2.4.6 (Headings and Labels).

Other web development issues

Some pages use a duplicate ID on more than one element. This does not comply with HTML5 WCAG 2.0 A 4.1.1.

The hyperlinks on some pages are nested incorrectly. This does not comply with HTML5 WCAG 2.0 A 4.1.1.

The lang attribute is not used to identify the language of the page. This means that assistive technologies will not be able to discern the default language to convert text into synthetic speech. This does not meet with success criterion WCAG 2.1 A 3.1.1.

Some users are unable to use a mouse, so use the keyboard instead. Add an equivalent keyboard event handler to help these users. This does not comply with WCAG 2.1 A F54.

Some pages have errors with aria controls. This does not meet success criterion WCAG 2.1 A 1.3.1.

No site map is provided. This does not meet success criterion WCAG 2.1 AA 2.4.5.
