The site at www.northhertscab.org.uk has been given a fresh new look and, as well as providing information and advice, also features direct links to a wide range of free resources and guidance.

The update means that the site can be easily used by those who use mobile phones and tablets, and it meets the latest web standards to provide a much better experience for visitors.

Catherine Bennett, who is in charge of the CAB’s digital and media communications, said: “We’re delighted to be launching our new-look website.

“It has been completely re-designed and updated to provide advice, information and guidance.

“People can now access a wide range of information designed to help them research their enquiry themselves.

“If they cannot find the answer to their query there is an option to contact us directly.

“More traditional information is also available via the new site including up-to-date locations and times of drop-in advice sessions as well as how to find us.

“You can also read our latest news and find links to our Twitter and Facebook feeds.

“We want to offer people as many ways as possible of keeping in touch with us.

“We know many people prefer the internet as a way of making contact with us and now it is much easier to do so.”

The new site also offers an agency referral form which can be used by other advice-giving organisations who would like to refer clients directly to the CAB team.

Chief executive Rionach Aiken said: “We hope our new website will encourage individuals to access the tools they need to help answer their own problems.

“If people are unable to visit our drop-in sessions due to work and family commitments we can still help.

“By making our expertise more accessible we hope we can help more people.”
