Our commitment to accessibility

HR-inform has been designed, developed and tested on as many computers and web browsers as possible to ensure accessibility.

We've made every effort to provide a useful website for as many people as possible. We avoid using colour combinations that cause difficulties for people with colour blindness and have made provision for people who are visually impaired. This follows many of the recommendations from the RNIB Web Accessibility Initiative. We continue to monitor our site on a regular basis to improve accessibility for people with sensory disabilities.

If you find the layout of the homepage confusing, look at the site map for a simple table with links to all the areas of the site.

If you have a question that we haven't covered in this section or wish to provide feedback send us an email using our our feedback form.
