The Children’s Society launches its new website today (Monday, 31 January), vastly improving visitor experience and making all of the charity's services and programmes easier to find.

The thousands of people who visit the charity's website every day will now find better navigation and clearer page layout and design. There is also a map, which allows postcode searches to find programmes, events and shops in your area.

In the run-up to revamp, the charity quizzed website visitors and supporters to find out what they thought of the old site, as well as what kind of improvements they could make.

The Children’s Society Chief Executive Bob Reitemeier said: 'We’re delighted to launch our exciting new website, which is very user-friendly and lays the foundations for more interactivity and participation in the future. I'd like to personally thank the many supporters and staff who have worked with us.'

A new dedicated website for children and young people is set to be unveiled in the Spring. 

The new site also conforms to best practice standards of accessibility.

The Children's Society wants to create a society where children can be children, childhood is respected and every child is valued for who they are. Our approach is driven by our Christian values and by the voices of children and young people, who are at the heart of all we do. In 2009 The Children’s Society published The Good Childhood Inquiry, the UK's first independent national inquiry into childhood. Its aims were to renew society's understanding of modern childhood and to inform, improve and inspire all our relationships with children. The Children's Society is continuing to improve this understanding of issues affecting children through all of its ongoing work.
