Winston's Wish launch new website!

Winston’s Wish, the UK’s leading charity for bereaved children, is delighted to announce the launch of its new website which retains the original URL and is now live:  

The informative new website has a fresh new look with user friendly navigation. Visitors to the site can easily access the useful guidance and support provided for parents and carers supporting bereaved children along with information for schools and professionals. Impactful images and videos have been added to tell the story of the life changing work performed by Winston’s Wish.

The aim of the new Winston’s Wish website is to provide a more logical journey for the user. Visitors to the site can now access all of the information they need with just a few clicks and can easily view the full range of services that Winston’s Wish offers to grieving families.

The new Winston’s Wish website has a variety of engaging functions enabling users to interact directly with the charity.  Visitors to the site can directly acquire award winning publications and useful resources which address issues arising from supporting bereaved children and young people.  The publications offer clear guidance, advice and practical suggestions to parents, carers and professionals. Supporters of Winston’s Wish can register for fundraising events, volunteer to provide vital help to the charity and make donations.

Plans to redesign the ‘Young People’ interactive section of the site are in progress with a launch date anticipated in autumn 2014.

The team at Winston’s Wish have embraced current online channels and have incorporated Facebook and twitter into the website design with real time social media feeds. There is also an up-to-the minute media centre designed for journalists and media professionals, where a host of useful resources including media contact details, brand guidelines, press releases and more can be accessed.

Catherine Ind, Chief Executive of Winston’s Wish commented:  “We are delighted to launch a new and much improved website that will provide an effective and cohesive aid to directly support children and their families before, during and after bereavement.  We encourage new and existing users to visit the new site and learn more about the services offered by Winston’s Wish.”

“Winston’s Wish is looking to deliver a cutting edge experience in digital communications through the launch of the new website. This will enhance the exceptional service offered year-round by the charity.” Catherine continued.

The Winston’s Wish Helpline, staffed by qualified clinical practitioners, provides guidance and information for anyone supporting a bereaved child - 08452 03 04 05, 9am-5pm Monday – Friday and 7pm-9.30pm on Wednesday.
