How do I get around this site?

Using links

If you want to go to another area of the site, click with your mouse when your cursor is over a link. Whenever your cursor looks like a hand rather than an arrow, it means you can click and go to another page.

You can go to any of the main sections, e.g. News, by clicking on the buttons in the top navigation bar. These appear on every page.

Where am I?

Once you’ve left the home page you can see where you are by taking a look at the main navigation links which are highlighted to indicate the section you are in.

Don’t worry if you’ve gone to the wrong page by mistake, just click on the Back button of your browser.

You can do this again and again, until you get back to where you want to be.

I find using a mouse difficult – how do I get around?

Arrow keys and tab

First try using the arrow keys on your keyboard. The up and down arrow keys will help with scrolling. You can also jump to the top and bottom of the page using the page up and page down keys.

To move through the site, try using your tab key, followed by the return key.

The text is too small for me to read, how can I change it?

You can customise your browser to make the text larger.
If you are using Internet Explorer, choose View then Text size and select Medium, Larger or Largest.

What are PDFs and how do I read them?

PDF stands for Portable Document file. It’s a handy way of publishing brochures and leaflets on the web and retaining their original look.

You need a plug-in called Adobe Acrobat Reader to view these files. You can download this free of charge at get.adobe.com/reader/

How can I view a Word file if I don’t have Word software?

Microsoft has made a free Word Viewer available to download at

How do I change my screen resolution?

This site looks best with a screen resolution (the size of what is shown on your screen) of 1024 x 768 pixels.

To change this on a PC, go to Start > Settings > Control Panel > Display > Settings and change the desktop area using the sliding bar.

On an Apple Macintosh, you can use the Monitor & Sound Control Panel to change the resolution.
