Accessibility Statement

Accessibility statement

We aim to ensure that everyone has full access to our website, including people with disabilities.

Design standards

We aim to design and build to at least the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 A standard.

We also aim to make the site work well for users worldwide, including those with slower internet connections.

Structure of the site

We have one set of pages for the whole site, which we aim to make accessible to all. We do not separate accessible and less accessible pages into separate sections. A link to a site map can be found in the footer of every page, which shows the organisation of the site.


We aim to use clear, plain English in a concise and meaningful way. We unfortunately do not have the capacity to produce all of our content in other languages, but we try to do so where possible, with Afrikaans, Venda, Sotho, Zulu, and Xhosa being the next priority.

Some of our deeper content is in publications available as PDFs. We aim to make this content more accessible, both within the PDFs and by drawing it out in other forms.

Use of cookies

Every user is informed about how the site uses cookies on their first visit. For more information see our privacy notice.

Browser support

There will always be small differences in the display between browsers, but we do aim to broadly support the latest stable versions of:

  • Mozilla Firefox for all platforms
  • Google Chrome for all platforms
  • Safari for Apple devices
  • Microsoft Edge for Windows
