CHARITY WORKING FOR EQUAL HUMAN RIGHTS

CHARITY WORKING FOR EQUAL HUMAN RIGHTS

We were approached by Change Charity to help design and develop a brand new, accessibility focused website to help Change improve and continue their work creating opportunities for people with learning disabilities.

DELIVER INCLUSIVE USER EXPERIENCE

We consulted with the charity’s in house design time to help create a responsive, digital solution that met their needs of their audiences.

From the very early stages of this project the creative solutions centred on the aim of delivering great usability and AA grade accessibility. This involved implementing some key functionality and features including an accessibility tool bar, which we made available across every page of the website. This enables the user to change font sizes, choose font and background colours within a plain text view of the site. Moreover we had to ensure the final site design was screen reader friendly and accessible through the access keys H, S and M.

As well as delivering key accessibility features for members of Change, the charity also work alongside a number of high profile clients and partners including Comic Relief, the Department of Health and NHS England to support their work towards empowering people with learning disabilities.

As such, the website needed to offer lots of information, resources and downloads in a clear, easily navigable format, with eCommerce functionality in place to allow various guides and resources to be purchased.

Alongside these features it was also important a “donate” button was provided to allow the charity’s supporters to easily contribute to their funding.​The website was built using Kentico v8, an industry leading CMS platform that delivered the required functionality for updating, changing and managing content on the Change website, including products available in the shop.
