Enable launches fresh new website

Enable New Zealand, the country’s largest provider of government funded disability support services and equipment has just relaunched its website, bringing with it a new look, better functionality and streamlined information to help users understand the work of Enable New Zealand.

The new site focuses on clearly explaining the key services that Enable New Zealand provides, how people can apply for assistance and how their work has impacted on the lives of people right across the country. The new design is user-friendly, mobile responsive and accessible for users with low vision or those using screen reader technology.

Last year, Enable provided government-funded disability equipment and support services to over 73,000 New Zealanders so the site needed to be simple to navigate and provide easy to understand information for members of the public and the assessors and health professionals that use Enable’s website on a regular basis as part of their role.

Amanda Cockburn, Web & Technology Manager at Enable New Zealand said: “We’re really excited to be launching this new site; we’ve spent a lot of time designing it to be the most user-friendly site possible – we want it to help us clearly communicate what Enable provides and how we can assist people live the lives they want to live.”

The site will also shortly include a new feature called ‘Discover’ – a system that will search a huge database of information to provide the user with an answer to their question. Enable hope that this will ensure that visitors can quickly and simply find the specific information they are looking for.

 “We hope that visitors to the new site will enjoy the changes we’ve introduced and that it simplifies the information we are trying to share,” continues Amanda. “We’d love to hear people’s feedback on the site so do please get in touch if you’ve got ideas on how we can make it even better.”
