Information NOW is an initiative of Newcastle’s Quality of Life Partnership. The Partnership was established in 2005 to enable older people and agencies to work together to improve the quality of life of older people in Newcastle.
The Quality of Life Partnership asked Presence to design and develop a website to enable older people to access up-to-date information about their community and region. As part of the development process we undertook extensive usability testing with focus groups, including the Newcastle Blind Society.
The result is a user-friendly, elegant and accessible website, powered by a custom-built content management system which allows the Information NOW team to easily and quickly add, edit and delete content on the website.
