The Department is committed to accessibility, and in respect of making printed materials and forms accessible, follows guidance which is consistent with the Royal National Institute for the Blind guidance and Central Office of Information Informability for making information accessible.

The Department's standard approach is to produce information materials in black text on white background, which provides a good contrast for people with sight impairment, including red/green colour blindness. The Department also endeavours to provide alternative formats to meet specific needs, if required.
