We’ve been working with social care clients for many years and have assisted with a range of different projects. Journey Enterprise are an organisation who specialise in working with people with learning disabilities, helping them to learn a range of skills to achieve independence. They believe everyone has the right to have a good job, be fit and healthy and have fun. Their support workers work closely with their clients to help them develop all sorts of life and work skills which enable them to have more freedom and reach their full potential.
Journey wanted a website that talked directly to their clients, a site that made people feel welcome and gave a real account of what they will deliver. They wanted to challenge the more corporate focused charity sites and deliver a totally user focused website experience. As part of this project Retox carried out focus groups with many of the young adults who attend the centre and what you see is the results of that feedback. The project also involved creating a range of other marketing and promotional material.
What We Did
Web design and development for charity featuring secure chat room service.
The comic book feel of the site is inviting and appealing and the information and graphics is geared towards young adults with learning disabilities such as down syndrome. It explains how Journey Enterprises will support them on their own personal journey to become more independent.
The website will continue to evolve with the service with more content and features being added over time. The site includes a dedicated login area, a forum for clients to keep in touch and live chat functionality to give site visitors quick access to information, help and support.
