PDF documents

Some documents on this website (such as brochures and magazines) are in PDF format. To view a PDF document you will need to have Adobe Reader. You can download Adobe Reader for free. All information in our PDFs is either available elsewhere on the website or supplied in alternative formats such as a rich text document. In the future, we aim to make all PDFs accessible to screenreaders.

Printing

To print out a page of the website use the Print link provided on every page. If you have selected a larger text size on screen your printed page should also have larger text.

Some browsers may automatically shrink the text to fit on one page. If you find that the text has printed in too small a font to read comfortably you might find it helpful to print with the paper length ways (landscape). You can select this option in the printer window that appears when you choose to print a page.
