Accessibility Statement

The Foundation has undertaken to use our knowledge and understanding of the ways in which different people access the Internet to develop a web site that is clear and simple for everybody to use.

Validation

We have used XHTML 1.0 and CSS that conforms to specification, as laid out by the W3C because we believe that usability and accessibility must have a solid foundation.

We have also endeavoured to achieve AA accessibility as measured against version 1.0 of the WCAG. We are aware however, that a number of the checkpoints of the WCAG are subjective — and although we are confident that we have met them, there may be instances where interpretation may vary.
