We are committed to making our website and information available to everyone.
We aim to comply with the AA requirements of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1). This is an ongoing process of re-evaluation and we are continually working to make our website more accessible for people with disabilities as technology and standards allow.
Accessibility on our website
We use a plug-in called UserWay Website Accessibility Widget that is powered by a dedicated accessibility server.
Enabling the Accessibility Menu
Click on the 'Accessibility' button that appears at the top of each page. The accessibility menu will load in a few moments.
We continue our efforts to constantly improve the accessibility of our website and services in the belief that it is our collective moral obligation to allow seamless, accessible and unhindered use also for those of us with disabilities.
Despite our efforts to make all pages and content on our site fully accessible, some content may not have yet been fully adapted to the strictest accessibility standards. This may be a result of not having found or identified the most appropriate technological solution.
Further general accessibility resources

British Sign Language (BSL) interpreting service
Contact Scotland BSL offers a free interpreting service that enables deaf, British Sign Language (BSL) users to contact public, voluntary and private sector services in Scotland.
A BSL user can video call an interpreter at Contact Scotland BSL directly, who will then speak to the organisation or bureau adviser, and act as an intermediary for the deaf person.
