Before you go any further, please make sure you are using our website in Chrome to get the best viewing experience.

Our new website has been designed around the feedback we received from the people we support, our employees, our volunteers and our commissioners.

From this feedback, we were able to identify 3 key areas of our website that we wanted to focus on and improve.

We wanted our new website to be accessible to everyone, no matter what device you’re using, easy to use and to encapsulate all the fantastic work that is happening across our services.

Accessibility

One of our main priorities when creating our new website was easier navigation. We have ensured that our website is as easy as possible to navigate so you have no trouble finding what you’re looking for.

We have also added Browsealoud to our new website. Browsealoud offers a host of reading and language translation support, including text-to-speech, text magnification, translation, web page simplifier and much more.

Better search functionality

Our new search functionality will make finding what you’re looking for much easier than before. Whether you’re looking for a service, groups or events, you can now type in your town or postcode, filter the results to what you’re looking for and you will see a list of everything that we offer in your area.

This new search functionality also offers benefits to our services. Each service has their own service specific page that is tailored to them and includes everything you need to know about that service. You can also download their leaflet from the page.

Events calendar

You can now view all of the groups and events that are taking place across our services in one place.

Our new events calendar allows you to see clearly everything that is going on in your area, be this local activity groups, forums, fundraising or even corporate events.

Our services are also able to use this calendar to let us know about any upcoming events in their area so we can always keep you up to date.

We wanted to create a community feel to our new website and we hope you agree that we have achieved this with our new events calendar.

Take a look around and let us know what you think

We have rebuilt our new website from the ground up and we would love to get your thoughts. Our new website is for you, so take a look around, explore and let us know what you think!
