Accessibility of this website

This site is currently rated 90-100 for accessibility in Google’s testing tool Lighthouse.

However we know some elements of this website still aren’t fully accessible – we’re working to fix these.

We’re investigating a new, more accessible, theme which we hope will be live by June 2020. Any outstanding issues will be listed here once the new theme is live.
