Enable Supported Employment Services

Enable is a specialist supported employment service for those with disabilities and mental health needs. They have operated in the Shropshire area since 1994, and came to Source with a requirement to build a new WordPress website.

As Enable’s range of services and service area have grown, the need for a standalone website has become critical to their mission (the previous web presence being a sub-section of the existing Shropshire Council website.) The new website features a custom-designed theme, extended WCAG 2.0 AA accessibility guidelines compliance, and a greater scope of browser compatibility than would be usual.

Careful consideration has been made at every step of the project to ensure ease of use and inclusion for all visitors to the website. The colour palette has been developed with visual impairment in mind, and during the development of the theme extensive use has been made of WAI-ARIA to signpost website navigation and content for those using screen readers and similar disability technologies.

The use of WordPress has made the website reliable, simple to update, future-proof and portable. A fully responsive design also ensures a completely tailored browsing experience, no matter the device the visitor to the website uses.

“We originally chose Source to provide us with our new website due to the innovative designs they pitched to us and their attention to detail. The process has been quick and easy. Source gave us a dedicated contact who was available on email, over the phone and for meetings whenever we required, making the process personable and seamless. The finished website is fantastic and exactly what we had in mind. We would highly recommend Source’s services to anyone looking to enhance their online presence.”
