Merton Council’s fostering team launches new website
By Hilary Stephenson | 13/09/2012
The council have an active Fostering Department who work to ensure Merton has a pool of foster carers available to look after children in its care. The council recently decided to redesign and develop their website so it better reflects their position as a vibrant, child-focused agency.
The new site, which was designed and built by Cheshire-based User Experience company Sigma (www.wearesigma.com), is highly intuitive, user-centred, and a significant departure from the previous site with a range of new features, including:
- Online enquiry forms and email alerts
- A news/blog area
- Social media integration
- A simple, intuitive content management framework based on the Umbraco CMS
