The organisation must have aims and values complementary to our own, or contribute to our work.

The content of the site must be relevant and useful to the audience of the web page where the link will appear. Local events appeal to a very small part of our audience and will, in general, be rejected.

The content must be reliable, up-to-date and professionally designed, complete, accurate and easy-to-use.
The website must conform to accessibility guidelines so that people with disabilities can use it.
