In harmony with the European Union (Accessibility of Websites and Mobile Applications of Public Sector Bodies) Regulations 2020, this statement is a testament to our dedication.
This website is partially compliant with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 Level AA.
While we're currently on the journey of achieving full compliance, our partial status reflects our transparency in addressing non-compliance areas.
