Accessibility

Our website has been built to ensure its content is available to the widest possible audience, including users of assistive technology or accessibility features. We engaged an accessibility consultant to provide us with advice during its development, and tested the website prototype with people who use assistive technology or accessibility features.

The site has been designed to meet the criteria for Level AA compliance with World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) 'Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0'. 

To successfully meet the needs of all users this website has been designed to be as accessible to as many users as possible, including:

  • people with disabilities who may use assistive technologies
  • those with slower internet connections
  • rural and regional users
  • those with mobile devices.

The accessibility features available on this site include:

  • instructions for resizing text
  • colour contrast considerations
  • image descriptions where required.
