Accessibility Statement

Lavendon are working hard to provide access to services and information that are helpful to all our customers. Many Internet users with disabilities find web sites difficult to use simply because of the way they are designed.

This web site has been designed to be as accessible as possible and to be compatible with the types of adaptive technology used by people with disabilities, including screen readers.

On this web site visitors can control the size of the text, and use “access keys” on the keyboard rather than the mouse to navigate through the pages.


Navigating This Website

To navigate through this website please use the menu at the top of the page. Your screen reader will read the menu to you and provide access to the tools on this page.


Access Keys

Access keys are keyboard shortcuts that replace the mouse for navigation. For this web site, you can use:

  • Press and hold the 'Alt' key and 'S' key, then press 'Enter', to Skip navigation.
  • Press and hold the 'Alt' key and '1' key, then press 'Enter', to go to the Home Page.
  • Press and hold the 'Alt' key and '2' key, then press 'Enter', to go to the Press Page.
  • Press and hold the 'Alt' key and '3' key, then press 'Enter', to go to the Site Map.
  • Press and hold the 'Alt' key and '4' key, then press 'Enter', to go to Search.
  • Press and hold the 'Alt' key and '8' key, then press 'Enter', to go to the Terms of Use
  • Press and hold the 'Alt' key and '0' key, then press 'Enter', to go to this Accessibility Page.

Please note, your browser may not support access keys in the same way as described above. For example, on a Apple computer, use the 'Apple' key, rather than 'Alt', and in Mozilla Firefox (version 2 and upwards) hold down Alt and Shift instead.
