St Dunstans Website
Since 1914, St Dunstan’s has been helping to rebuild the lives of ex-Service men and women who have lost their sight with emphasis on providing support and training to allow blind people to continue to live independently. Fundraising is a crucial part of its activities, since it receives no Government funding.
Working in conjunction with a London based design agency, HBR were required to build an attractive, functional, interactive site that provided full access to partially-sighted and blind users without compromising on design or functionality. A bespoke content management system was also built in to allow staff to update ALL site content quickly, easily and at no additional cost. There was also a very cost effective e-commerce and donation facility incorporated that allowed the organisation to received donations and sponsorship on line as well as fundraise by selling merchandise.
This was a challenging project, which made everyone involved completely re-evaluate the way in which they approached the construction, to produce an accessibility site, which still looks good for sighted individuals.
