Idox partners with Coram Family and Childcare to update website

Idox, a leading software company, has continued its long-term partnership with Coram Family and Childcare to deliver an improved and updated web-portal for service users.

Coram Family and Childcare is a charity that aims to allow parents to easily connect with childcare providers in their area, as well as acting as a focal point for gaining access to key decision makers in government and elsewhere, ensuring parent’s voices are heard.

Working on a pro-bono basis, Idox’s Directory Team have redesigned the Childcare Finder channel of Coram Family and Childcare’s website, to create a better user journey and enable Coram Family and Childcare to do even more to connect parents with the care they need.

Idox already works with a significant number of local authorities around the country, to deliver smart information, advice and guidance platforms for residents to engage with, and the Coram Family and Childcare website provides a platform to help families find out about childcare providers across the country. This allows parents from anywhere in the country to search the database and find support.

Commenting on the website refresh, Chris Evans, Head of Product & Strategy at Idox said:

“The Coram Family and Childcare website is vital to so many parents across the country and has become even more vital over the last year as the pandemic has closed schools and childcare has, for many, become an urgent issue.

“We are proud to be able to support Coram Family and Childcare and the families they work with, and hope our refreshed channel makes the user journey even better, for parents engaging with the service.”

Megan Jarvie, Head of Coram Family and Childcare, said: “Our website is central to the work we do, providing a portal through which parents and carers can search for and find support. It’s been great working with the team at Idox to deliver an updated version of the Childcare Finder on our website.

“High quality, reliable information about childcare is so important to families, and our refreshed Childcare Finder will be a vital asset in helping families to be able to find that information through their local Family Information Service.”

The updated Coram Family and Childcare website can be found here.
