PDFs and documents across our site are not always accessible
some images do not contain text alternatives
some parts of the website may not, yet, be accessible using a keyboard
some of our online forms are difficult to navigate using just a keyboard

Video and audio content
We aim for all our video/audio content to have at least one of the following:
We know that some of our video, or audio, content - particularly older videos - does not consistently have subtitles. We are working on this.
Our website features downloadable resources, mainly Word documents and PDFs. We will work toward making sure that all downloadable resources are accessible and will investigate moving away from the PDF documents in the future.
We have tested the accessibility of the website's colour palette. The majority of the website conforms with WCAG 2.1 Level AA. We are in the process of changing the colours that do not.
Third party content
Our site includes Third Party Content and functionality. Whilst we strive to make sure any Third party is accessible, we cannot always guarantee it.
What we're doing to improve accesibility
Our site will be regularly reviewed with manual audits by our content team and by scans with automated testing tools.
