Navigating this website
This site has been designed for ease of use. The main navigation includes all the main sections of the website and runs across the top of each page. Clicking on any of these items will take you to a specific section of the website, where the navigation is displayed down the left. Choosing a section will also reveal any further content pages within a section. This style of navigation is consistent throughout the site.
Images and alt tags
All images used on the site include ‘alt’ tags descriptive text alternatives. This allows users to see what the image is meant to convey even if it doesn’t load, or if images have been switched off or if using a screen reader to read the web page rather than view.
