We're now in the process of getting lots of things ready for the new look website. Inevitably this has taken a bit longer than planned. We have a small staff and, with lots of projects and interest in our work things often, take a bit longer than we hope.
Anyway, the changes should take place next week. There might be a few days where some of the links won't fully work and we won't have all the new features operational right a way. Nonetheless, you will get access to a lot of new material that we've been working on. The navigation should also be much better.
One of the things that will be most noticeable is how many new resources and material we have for people working with young people. There's going to be a whole new section. But we'll also have info about flourishing in later life, more going on about organisations which will be very relevant to the private sector. We also want to start prioritising other areas such as community development and health.
So keep coming back to the website in the next few weeks to see the new material and new features. Do give us feedback and let us know what you think and how we could improve what we're doing. You can use the blog forum as a way to do this or you can send us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org)
