We are working with a website design agency called Delete, on a project to redevelop our website.

In doing so, we want to ensure that the new website works well for you. We’re looking for people to review and test the new website, specifically:

  1. Autistic People - 6-8 participants
    - to take part in an online exercise to look at the structure of the site to see if we’ve put things in the right place
    - to take part in one-to-one interviews on the phone, online or face to face in London or Leeds.
  2. People who work with autistic people (teachers/education professionals, social care workers, health care workers) - 10 participants
    - to take part in an online exercise to look at the structure of the site to see if we’ve put things in the right place
    - to take part in a focus group in London or Leeds.
  3. Parents & Carers - 8 participants
    - to take part in an online exercise to look at the structure of the site to see if we’ve put things in the right place
    - to take part in a focus group in London or Leeds.

To say thank you to everyone who gives up their time to take part, we will be giving £75 to everyone who participates in both parts of the testing.

If you can help, we would like to hear from you.

When will it happen?

  • you must be able to take part in the online review (about 30 minutes - 1 hour of your own time) on 9 or 10 October 2019
  • you must be able to take part in the interviews or focus groups for 1 hour between 24 and 30 October 2019
  • if you’re chosen to take part, we will send you all the relevant information.

What will I be asked at the interview or focus groups?

The interview is just an informal chat between you and the researcher to ask your views on the website design and the way it works.

Before your interview, the researcher will send you an agenda of things they would like to talk to you about, so you have a chance to think about what you want to say.

How do I apply to take part?

Please send an email to sara.forrest@deleteagency.com with:

  • your name
  • your email
  • your address
  • your postcode
  • your contact number
  • whether you’re autistic, an autism professional and what profession, or the parent of someone autistic (please let us know if you fulfil more than one of these criteria)
  • any additional information you think might be helpful – such as how best to communicate with you.

The project is completely confidential and anonymous.

How will I know if I’ve been selected to take part?

Recruiters from Delete will be in touch to arrange the interviews.

If you don’t hear from the team, then you have not been selected to take part.

We wish you the best of luck and look forward to hearing from you soon.
