Southdown Website

Site design and build

Southdown is one of the largest not-for-profit specialist providers of care, support and housing services for vulnerable people in Sussex. They support over 8,000 people a year, employ over 950 staff and have a turnover of £24.5 million.

Sereno worked with Southdown to design and build a site that perfectly reflects the vital work of the organisation, as well as providing key contact points and advice for clients.

The site was built in the open source Drupal content management system using roles and publishing workflows to enable team-based publishing and editing.

Client feedback

"The service we received from Sereno was great. Their expert advice and guidance was invaluable, as is their continued support. I'd highly recommend them."
