This site makes use of access keys as a navigational aid. There is currently no standard implementation for access keys but we follow the E-envoy’s Guidelines for UK Governmentwebsites.
Access keys are keyboard shortcuts that allow you to navigate without the need for a mouse. In Internet Explorer on Windows, you can press the ALT key and an access key; on the Macintosh press the Control (CTRL) key and an access key. You may need to press enter/return to activate the link depending on your browser.

The code used for this site is structured semantically and the content and presentation elements are separate. This helps users who use non-graphical browsers to use the site as content is structured logically and makes sense when read using a text based browser or with a spoken browser.
As well as access keys the site uses tab indexing so that users with text based browsers can use the keyboard to navigate quickly and easily between links.
If you experience any accessibility issues with this site please let us know.
