Project Description

The Right Side of Care is a website launched in 2015 for young people in care from Wirral. We worked with Wirral Council and the Children in Care Council on the project.

Our role was to assist in the conceptualisation process and replace the previous design with something responsive and accessible, we also project managed the development of the site in collaboration with the design team at Wirral Council.

This project took place between September 2014 and was completed in February 2015.
