Teenage services Web site scoops good communication award
The newly redeveloped teenage services website (C4YP) has won a Good Communication award for IT Project Innovation.
C4YP, which was re-launched in March after going through an extensive consultation and redevelopment by Abacus e-Media, picked up the award during this month’s ceremony at the Emirates Stadium in London.
Judges comments: "..This is an innovative high impact Website, which directly addresses the type of social issues not normally associated with Council Websites. Focussed on the teenage community, C4YP provides relevant information and services to the young citizens of Lincolnshire in a form and language they understand. The project has created an innovative communication channel which effectively addresses many of the needs and wants of the teenage community..."
C4YP was shortlisted along with four other local authorities in the IT Project Innovation category but scooped the award for its efforts towards effective communication and innovation.
The awards, which have been running for five years, aim to promote and encourage the public sectors efforts towards effective communication with its citizens.
