Website Accessibility Statement

We recognise the importance of providing a website that is accessible by all users. We are aware that some people with disabilities find using the internet difficult and we also know that many sites do not accommodate those with visual or other disabilities. With this foremost in our mind we have tried our very best to make this website as accessible as possible. An accessible website ensures that all visitors have the same user experience whether they use assisting technology or not. Andrew Bull Insurance Services website meets the level 1 (and in part level 2) of the W3C’s (Web Accessibility Initiative) Standards & Guidelines for creating accessible websites and the W3C Guidelines for correct HTML and CSS markup.

Links

Links (Hyperlinks) are written in a manner that makes sense when read out of context The first link in every document is “Skip Navigation"; which allows users to skip directly to what is considered the main section of the page (the content).
