Downloadable documents 

Where possible we try to provide downloadable documents in different formats including PDF and rich text format.

If you have difficulties obtaining information from a PDF you can use Adobe's web-based conversion service to produce an HTML version.  However, please be aware that the standard of HTML produced is not very good.

We appreciate that it is frustrating to be unable to access information.  Kidwells are committed to accessibility of our site and written material. 

If any downloadable document presents a barrier to accessing information, please contact us with details of the document in question, the problems encountered and what we could do to help.
