Accessibility

The accessibility of our website is very important to us

We’re committed to ensuring our online information and services, including our website and Member Online, meet the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 level AA criteria,  so our content is accessible to all of our members and the wider community. This includes people with disabilities who might use screen readers or other types of technology to help them access information.

We worked closely with an independent accessibility consultant, the Centre for Inclusive Design (CFID), over a 12-month period to help make our website easier to use and more accessible for everyone.

The CFID assessed a sample of pages and key functions of our website against WCAG 2.0 level AA success criteria. Based on the sample reviewed, we’re pleased to report that our website achieved an accessibility score of 100%!
