Changing background colours

If you use magnification software you may wish to change our website's background colour. After magnification a white background can result in an uncomfortable glare.

It is also possible to change the colour of the main screen text on the website.

You can make either of the above changes by altering the preferences in your browser.

How to make these changes is detailed below.
