Content
Content across the site has been written and formatted to make it as accessible as possible. This includes:
. The use of semantic headings which are descriptive and used to highlight sections of text
. Clear and easy to understand language
. Meaningful text used for all links
. No information is conveyed exclusively through the use of colour


Colour contrast
Wherever possible we have designed pages and chosen colours to be accessible to colour-blind users. Where contrast is limited, this has been restricted to purely decorative content.
