Healthy lifestyles public engagement website for Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council
Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council needed a new public engagement website to showcase its public health services.
We worked in collaboration with public health team staff to plan and build a fully responsive website to encourage healthier lifestyle choices.
We used the WordPress CMS to make the new website as easy to maintain for staff as possible and developed templates that automatically populate for minimal administrative overhead.
Our design delivers an exceptional level of accessibility with large fonts and strong contract ratios, which complements the clear language style used by the team.
We implemented an events management system to enable the Healthy Sandwell to promote upcoming healthy activities and a signposting feature to showcase related national campaigns such as the NHS' How Are You?.
We also developed three bespoke lifestyle calculators which enable users to calculate potential savings from stopping smoking, their BMI and their weekly alcohol unit intake.
The Healthy Sandwell website was quickly and efficiently using Agile project management techniques. The new website enables users to easily find highly accessible advice on a wide range of health issues on any device.
