Accessibility Statement

Many Internet users with disabilities find web sites difficult or even impossible to use simply because of the way they are designed. We are working hard at the Guild to provide access to information that is available to all our members and customers, and this goes for the website, too.

We are aware of the types of adaptive technology used by people with disabilities and are redesigning pages across our portfolio of websites to ensure compatibility with as many of these systems as possible. Changes include keeping text clear, formatting layouts and tables, and making sure links adequately describe where they go ('click here' does not mean much in isolation).

If you come across a part of our site that is difficult to use please tell us about it. We intend to keep improving our accessibility so to help us do it, send us your comments.

Access Keys

Please be aware that access key functionality will vary depending on which browser you use. For instance, users of Internet Explorer may need to press the "Enter" key after selecting an access key, Firefox users should find that the access keys lead directly to the selected page.

We hope that you're enjoying using the features of this website and are not experiencing any problems. However, if you do have difficulty viewing the site, there are some things you can do to make it easier. You can change the settings of your browser to better suit your needs and use specially provided keyboard shortcuts in case you find it hard to use a mouse. There are a number of keyboard shortcuts, or access keys, to help site users as detailed below.

The keyboard shortcuts are intended to help users who have difficulty in using a mouse. This web site uses the UK Government access key system.

Note: please keep in mind that there can be variations on how to enter the access keys depending on the browser your are using. Firefox, for example, uses the combination
Alt + Shift + Number.
