Preparation of this accessibility statement

This statement was prepared on 17 Sep 2021. It was last reviewed on 17 Sep 2021.

This website was last tested on 27 April 2021. The test was carried out by the Central Digital and Data Office (part of the Cabinet Office).

A mixture of manual checks and automated tests were used to find the most common barriers to users with accessibility needs.

Manual checks included using each page without a mouse, viewing the page at different zoom settings, and simulating viewing the page on a small screen.

The automated tests were completed using the latest version of axe: https://www.deque.com/axe/

Tests were completed using different settings in the Google Chrome browser on Mac OSX with a 15-inch screen.
