We are committed to ensuring that our website is usable by everybody. We apply relevant standards and seek to continually improve the user experience.

This website is run by The National Governance Association. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, this means you can: 

  • use the menu at the top of each page to readily move between important areas
  • read and interact with pages when zoomed up to 200%
  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard 
  • listen to most of the website using a screen reader 
  • change the text size of the website through your browser

We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand. 

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability. 

The ‘help’ facility of your internet browser software will provide useful information on these and other accessibility options. Additional information on accessibility options can be found by following the links below:
