The Find & Connect website is changing soon

The Find & Connect website is getting an upgrade!

The way the Find & Connect website looks is changing.

Feedback from users such as yourself has led to some important upgrades in how we present information.

Now you’ll be able to find what you’re looking for faster and more easily, search for all types of information on the site, and browse galleries of photos. An upgrade behind the scenes means that when we want to update information –  which we do based on the knowledge and experience of people who were in care, as well as new research coming to light – we can move much faster than we can now.

The information on site will still be here, but will be easier to find and share, and get to what you need quicker.

If you’re familiar with the site but haven’t kept up with the changes through the blog, or usability testing and are finding it difficult to make the switch, let us know. We’re happy to help you get acquainted with the new look.

The new site will be going live soon. In the meantime you can view what the front page and institution entries will look like:

Search results can be easily shared with a link, and options to view search results as a list, in a grid with images, or on a map:
