What we are doing to improve accessibility
We are audited for accessibility by Silktide and Government Digital Services.
Our daily workflow includes accessibility checks using the WAVE Web Accessibility Evaluation Tool
Our Silktide report gives us recommendations on how to fix accessibility issues. We will deal with serious issues first.
Our website is built and hosted through third party software. In some instances, we may need to work with our third party software provider in order to solve accessibility issues.

would be tested before
- Pages with fewer forward slashes in their URL are tested first. e.g.
- Where pages have the same number of slashes, the pages which were encountered first on each page are tested first. e.g. links displayed at the top of the homepage, followed by links lower down, and so on.
This has the effect of testing high-level pages first, before going deeper into our website.
