We worked with The Suffolk Learning Disability Partnership to build them a website that is accessible, promotes their work and provides resources in a clear and visual way.
The Suffolk Learning Disability Partnership is an independent partnership of self-advocates, family carers, health and social care commissioners, police, Healthwatch, voluntary organisations and housing providers.
They work with people to achieve the vision of people with learning disabilities living good ordinary lives as part of their community, with the right support, at the right time, from the right people.
The website needed to explain what the Suffolk Learning Disability Partnership is, share useful information, promote their work and record the progress of SLDP strategy.
Our proposed solution was to create a custom WordPress website which was accessible and organised the content in an effective way.
The homepage design was created my Max at Ace Anglia and provides clear visual navigation using accessible photo symbols.
We continued this design throughput the rest of the website.
WordPress development and build
We built the website so different types of content/media can be added such as PDFs, website links and videos.
A key part of the website was to create a section for different Work Streams and display information on each that could be added to as the project progresses.
We came up with a way the organise this which is easy to navigate on the frontend and easy to update in the backend.
Having the ability to select different media meant that only the relevant fields are displayed in the admin UI, for example if PDF is selected then the field for adding the PDF is displayed. This also meant that we could add the correct description under each media type on the frontend so the user know what they need to do. For example “View of download the PDF document”, “Watch the video” or “Visit the external website”.
The new website for The Suffolk Learning Disability Partnership is an engaging, accessible & dynamic website which the team can easy update themselves.

WordPress development: Angie Vale
Angie worked with us to produce the Suffolk Learning Disability Partnership website, a niche and somewhat complex site intended to be informative and accessible to all. Angie was able to take this brief and produce an engaging, accessible & dynamic website.
The site was designed to make it as easy as possible for users to update through WordPress, which was exactly what we wanted.
