New Website for Enable Support Services in Dorset

This week we launched a new website for Weymouth-based social care providers "Enable Support Services".

From the new www.essdorset.co.uk website:

"Our goal is to support our clients in improving their skills and confidence in living independent and happy lives. We work in partnership with our clients and strive to consistently provide a sensitive, flexible and professional response. We have recently obtained registration with the Care Quality Commission (www.cqc.org.uk) and so are now able to offer personal care as well as social support."

"Within our team, we have high levels of knowledge and experience in working with people with various social care needs - including mental health difficulties, learning disability and Asperger's Syndrome."

ESS Dorset new website

 

A Clear and Simple Approach

In order to make the site as clear and simple to use as possible we used a variety of complementary approaches.

  • The design has good contrast, but low glare, making it easy on the eye.
  • It has larger than average text for easy reading.
  • Content is short and focused, using simple sentences.
  • A simple colour scheme is used for the different areas of the site for clients, carers and professionals.
  • We used Makaton symbols to highlight key client pages (circled in the image below).

Makaton symbols used to aid website navigationInitial feedback about the site has been really positive. We wish ESSDorset well as they continue to grow and develop over the coming months.

 

New Website For Osmington Village Hall

We’re pleased to announce that we have just launched a NEW website for Osmington Village Hall. Osmington Village Hall came to us needing a brand new website as the old one had been taken offline. We built the website from the ground up taking a fresh new approach alongside Osmington Village Hall.

Relaunch Of Weymouth And Portland Info Website

We’re excited to announce that we have relaunched the Weymouth and Portland Information website. The website is an internal project of ours and one that’s needed attention for a while. The main aim of the redesign was to make the website responsive and easier for users to navigate around.

New Website For R-em Therapies

We have just launched a new website for Emma at R-EM Therapies. R-EM Therapies is a new client of Alacrify’s that we’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with. R-EM came to us needing a new website as the old site was starting to show its age. The old site also wasn’t responsive and was also unsecure which negatively impacted the site's search engine rankings as well as being hard for users to access on their mobiles and tablets.

New Website For Ecs Special Projects

We have just launched a new website for ECS Special Projects. This is another website of ours that we originally built many years ago. The old site stood the test of time and still performed very well in Google searches, but the time had come for the look and feel to be updated in line with more contemporary design approaches.
