We want this site accessible to everyone who visits us, we know we are not there yet. We are planning a site access audit to highlight areas for improvement and we are always looking for funding and support to increase accessibility of the website.
If you have trouble accessing the site please contact us. As a volunteer powered group we may not be able to change things immediately, but your valuable feedback will form the brief for our web development work.
If you are a proficient word press web developer who shares our values and aspirations and you are able to donate some time to improving the accessibility of our site, we would love to hear from you.
Key board navigation:
Use the tab keys to move through links on a page without a mouse. Move backwards using shift + tab.
The first areas to be highlighted by the tab keys are the contrast then font buttons.
Or third tab click takes you to ‘skip to content’ press enter to go to the main text. Alternatively continuing to press the tab key takes you to ‘skip to navigation’ then ‘skip to site map’.
Changing the contrast and font size:
Buttons to control font and size are located on the left centre of the home page.
Alternatively you can change the text size in your browser
