This website is supported by Wix. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard

  • navigate using just one finger

  • tell where you are on the page

  • zoom in up to 200% without the text spilling off the screen

  • listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of Job Access With Speech (JAWS), NonVisual Desktop Access (NVDA) and VoiceOver)

We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.
