How to Use This Site

Accept Difference is committed to ensuring that our work is accessible to all people and we will continue to develop this website to ensure it meets the needs of all abilities.

Here you will find some helpful information:

Skip to content

Coded into the top left corner of all pages, but not visible to users, is a ‘skip to content’ link. This allows assistive device users to quickly skip over the site navigation to the page content.

Site navigation

The site has been structured simply to allow for easy navigation, with five primary navigation links appearing at the top of each page.

Most pages, except for the home page, have a ‘breadcrumb’ trail at the top of the page, which shows your current location and provides links to levels of the website above your current page location. Breadcrumb trails show users where they are in the context of the website, and allows them to interpret the page better and to go directly to a higher level of the site.

This navigation style is called a ‘breadcrumb’ after the story of Hansel and Gretel and the trail they left in the forest to help them trace their steps.

Search

The site search will usually provide the most direct method of finding information on the Accept Difference website. You can find the search function at the right-hand side of the primary navigation.
