UK Government access keys

We aim to make our website accessible to as many people as possible and implement the UK Government access keys.

Access keys are keyboard shortcuts which allow a user to navigate a web site without using a mouse or other pointing device. This can sometimes be quicker and may assist those with motor skill difficulties.
