Teenage Cancer Trust unveils new website to improve digital services

| 28th Nov 14

Teenage Cancer Trust has launched a brand new website to significantly improve its digital services.

The website, www.teenagecancertrust.org, has been completely redesigned to make it easier to use and navigate across all platforms. Visitors to the site will be able to find a wealth of information about cancer in young people and the charity’s services across the UK. The site also contains lots of information about how to get involved with fundraising, news about national and local events as well as celebrity ambassador updates, and lots more.

Major new content includes a cancer information centre which aims to gain the prestigious NHS Information Standard certification. This is awarded to organisations that produce clear and evidence-based health information following a rigorous assessment.

The charity worked with a range of audiences who fed back at every stage of the development. This included young people with cancer, health professionals and supporters who all tested the site to ensure it met their needs and that content was engaging, helpful and easy to find.

Kate Collins, Director of Fundraising & Marketing at Teenage Cancer Trust said: “The time was right to strengthen our website to make information for young people and our supporters easier to navigate with richer content. We will be building more features, functionality and content going forwards to make sure our digital platform is the first point of call for young people with cancer, their friends and families.”

The new website was created by the charity’s in-house digital team and designed in collaboration with digital agency, Reading Room.
