You’re Welcome website goes live!

We’re very excited to announce the launch of our latest project: an online community for the people of Gloucestershire.

You’re Welcome is a ten year initiative commissioned by Barnwood Trust to create a vibrant and thriving communities in Gloucestershire for people from all walks of life. Back in January this year, Barnwood chose Yoke as their online partners to design and develop an online, inclusive space where people could connect with each other, share, contribute and get involved in their local community.

During the process of developing the online community we worked with fantastic people from DROP (Disabled Responsible Organised People) to ensure that the website was accessible to people with wide ranging physical and mental health disabilities.

Take a look at the You’re Welcome animation to learn more about the project.

We’re thrilled with the result (even if we do say so ourselves) and it’s been such a pleasure to work with the team at Barnwood Trust. We’ve already had many people contributing and sharing on the site which is fantastic to see. Here is a sneak peek at some of the tweets from the project…

We’ll be sharing a much more in-depth case-study of this project with you shortly, which will detail Yoke’s ‘You’re Welcome’ journey and the technical challenges involved.
