This year we received a grant from the Transform Foundation to develop a new site where carers, professionals and partners can find all the information they need about the services we offer.

For the last six months we’ve been working with Raising IT to design a site that makes it easier to find everything you need to know about Carers Trust Tyne and Wear. To get things rolling, Diane and Ant attended a design session at Raising IT's London office where they mapped out the site's content. Since then, they've been working with designers and techies to make the site interesting and useful for carers, professionals and supporters.

One of the most interesting parts of the design journey has been working with another charity to quality check the web layout.

"I wasn't sure what to expect working with another charity to design our site. Having someone on-hand who doesn't know our work really helped to highlight some of the mistakes that we were making with our proposed site layout."  Ant Lea
