Brandon Trust

Back

Brandon Trust is a registered charity, providing care and support for children, young people and adults with a learning disability and/or autism. They have a range of services including supported living, short breaks, children’s play schemes and accommodation with nursing and support.

The Trust also wanted to encourage people to work with them, through fundraising, co-production and consultancy projects, and recruitment, so it was also important to provide relevant and accessible information to every stakeholder in order to encourage engagement.

Finding that their previous website was no longer fit for purpose and did not effectively tell the charity’s story or promote the incredible support on offer, they came to Squarebird for the solution.

 

“The Brandon Trust website was a fantastic collaborative project. We started off by taking the time to get to know the Trust, the team, their audience, and their needs for the website. The work the Trust does makes a real impact to the lives of so many, so we wanted to ensure a website that reflects that and helps to showcase the array of support they provide, and how others can work with the Trust to support them and wider society. Now, with a website built as a foundation for their growth, we look forward to a future of partnership with the Trust as the charity continues to develop.”

The delivery

Due to the nature of the charity, it was crucial that the new website was easy to use and accessible to all. Squarebird worked closely with the team at Brandon Trust to ensure every need was catered for, designing and building the new website to meet the WCAG 2.1 AA standard as minimum.

Each page of the website can be edited by the user, to increase the text size, lighten or darken the background colour, and underline all links. There is also an option to have the page be read aloud, meaning those with visual impairment or learning difficulties can still access all the information.

The backend of the website has been built with client management at the forefront, ensuring the Trust can manage and update their new website as they see fit.

The result.

The charity hope that with this new website, the support on offer will reach a wider group of people, and act as a recruitment platform for new employees and volunteers

It has been a brilliant process working with Squarebird. They completely understood our charity’s mission, vision, and values, and embraced our person-centred approach to the project.

They clearly understood our need to be exceptionally accessible and inclusive, and like us, they really cared about the impact this project will have on the people we support, knowing that is what really matters.

As a charity funded by local authorities, we have a huge responsibility to get a project like this right and we are over the moon with the end result.
