Web Accessibility Initiative
We aim to meet the highest level of accessibility set out in the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) guidelines (version 2.0). Where we do not currently meet the guidelines, we are working towards them.
Using the Revitalise site
UserWay Accessibility Menu
We have implemented an accessibility widget on our website. Our goal is to give users the tools needed to tailor their online experience to their individual needs. Below is a guide to the tools in the menu and how they work.
Access the menu by clicking the button on the right hand side of every page or by pressing Control (Command on Mac computers) + U together.
If you would like to reset any settings you have added, there is a Reset All button in the Accessibility Menu. Otherwise, you can click through the same buttons you’ve selected to return to the original.
Change the colour of the text and page background
To change the colour of text and the page background, use the Contrast tool in the accessibility menu. There are four settings and you can select the one that best suits you. If none of the options suit you, many web browsers offer the ability to set your own colour scheme. Please scroll down to learn more about using your web browser.
A similar tool in the menu is the Highlight Links tool. If you have trouble identifying links to navigate the site, this tool highlights all links in bright, contrasting colours. It will also highlight any buttons and images which contain links to other pages.
You can change the text size in our Accessibility Menu by using the Bigger Text button. There are also other buttons for additional text control options. They are:
- Text Spacing, which has three spacing settings
- Dyslexia Friendly, which changes the font
- Line Height, which offers three settings for adding space between lines of text
- Text align, which allows you to align all text in a way that suits you. Choose from left, right, centre or justified
To be as accessible as possible, we aim to keep important information on our website static. But if there are animations you’re having trouble viewing, the Pause Animations tool in the Accessibility Menu will freeze them, giving you time to view them at your pace.
If you have trouble finding your cursor on the page, the Accessibility Menu’s Cursor button has three different settings which can help. You can make the cursor icon larger, or set it to a reading mask or reading guide. The second two options can help if you easily lose your place on the page.
Using your browser’s accessibility tools
Most modern web browsers offer their own accessibility tools to assist your online experience. These can include an inbuilt Read Aloud option, changing text size, and setting/changing contrast colour schemes.

Accessibility on mobile phones and browsers
Most new mobile smart phones and tablets include settings to make text larger in the device settings. Many apps also include accessibility settings, too. These are often also controlled in the main device settings menu, by scrolling to the app listing, rather than by opening the app itself.

Some documents on this website (such as brochures and magazines) are in PDF format. To view a PDF document you will need 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.
We are making a shift towards digital brochures, with an aim towards improving their accessibility. To learn more please visit our brochures page.
To print out a page of the website, either right click or press the Control and P keys together. 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 set to landscape. You can select this option in the printer window that appears when you choose to print a page.
