New easy-to-use website for Uttlesford CAB

AN easy-to-use website has been launched by Uttlesford Citizens Advice Bureau this week.

The site – which went live on Tuesday – is aimed at the many clients who are happy to help themselves once signposted to a relevant organisation.

It is hoped it will improve awareness, and access to advice, for younger people in Uttlesford. The new website also allows Uttlesford CAB to support on-line donation facilities and fundraising activities.

A spokesman for the charity said: “We aimed to develop an easy-to-use website format that provided some of the best sources of advice on the net, whilst highlighting organisations and services that are readily available in Uttlesford.

“You can find the answer to many of the most frequent questions we are asked. We work collaboratively with a host of caring and respite charities, mental health support groups, alcohol and drug organisations, domestic abuse services. Information and links are included here on all these and more.”

The site’s technical build was funded by Stansted Airport Community Trust. Melanie Hollidge, from Saffron Walden-based media specialists Wired2Create, volunteered time and energy to design the site, and has also been instrumental in getting the bureau using Twitter and Facebook.
