Accessibility

This website has been designed and produced with accessibility in mind, in line with industry best practice.

If you have problems using this site, please contact Headway

Here are some of the things we have done to make the site accessible:

  • Not using tables for anything but tabular data. This makes pages load faster for everyone, and makes it easy for screenreader users to use our site
  • Using meaningful, valid XHTML for markup
  • Thinking about link text carefully, so that it makes sense out of context
  • Using meaningful ALT text on images, and moving presentational images into the CSS
  • Making sure that text can be resized without messing up the site design
  • Warning when a link will open a new window, or open a PDF or Word Document
  • Using good colour contrast between foreground and background
