Our commitment to accessibility

We have made every effort to make this website accessible and easy to use for everyone, no matter what browser you choose to use, and whether or not you have any disabilities. It also follows the Worldwide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0, and we are constantly working to achieve a minimum of all level double-A checkpoints.

The website's layout takes into account users who are blind or visually impaired. It is fully compatible with popular screen reading software. If you have difficulties using a mouse, the website can be navigated using only a keyboard.

In technical language, all pages on this site should be valid to Hyper Text Mark-up Language (HTML) 4.1 strictly and use Cascading Style Sheets (CSS).

Maintaining an accessible site is an ongoing process and we are continually working to offer a user friendly experience. However, if you have any problems using this website please contact us via our online form, email us at ninis.nisra@finance-ni.gov.uk or phone us on 028 9038 8400.

Please note, some sections of this website are controlled by third parties and so it has not been possible for the same standards of accessibility to be applied to them.

Text & page resizing.

This browser does not support page zoom. To increase the text size: From the top menu bar, select View and point to Text size. If you are using this browser it is strongly recommended you upgrade to a modern browser. Please see the "Browser compatibility" on the right for upgrade options.
