Additional instructions

Please ensure that all images posted on social media make use of the 'alt text' function and duplicate any words that appear in a graphic, so the same information is accessible to those using screen readers. You should also describe any imagery that appears within this description. Please also ensure that key information is communicated in the post text, rather than relying on a visual asset. You can find further guidance and how to do this for different platforms below and for further advice on writing image descriptions, see below:
