Issues we know about
We strive for our website to achieve WCAG 2.1 AA standards. Unfortunately it is not always possible for our content to be completely accessible. Where this is likely to happen, we will explain the reasons for this and outline alternative options.
We have tested the accessibility of the colour palette we currently use on our website. The majority of colours we use meet WCAG AA standards. We are in the process of changing the few colours that do not, to ensure all our visitors can clearly view our online content.
If you come across a barrier that we haven’t identified, please email us at email@example.com or call +44 (0) 1462 476 700.
