You may have noticed that our website has changed recently, and we want to let you know a bit about that.
There are two websites
While we have a new website now, it will take us a few months to transfer content across and make sure that the content we are offering is relevant and clear. While we’re moving content, you will notice that some of the links on this website go back to our previous site.
The new website should always be the first place you check for information as this is where we’ll be publishing new information and documents. We’ve tried to make sure that our most popular content has been transferred across first.
If you have links to the old website, these should still work without you needing to do anything. Over time we will be removing content from the previous site and we expect that when we do this bit of the previous site will break. We’ll try and point you to the correct new content when we remove old pages, but this may not always be possible.
Where a link points back to the old website, it will have an icon of a filing cabinet after the link, like in this example.
In a few months we’ll be switching our previous website off. If you want to refer to archived content, then you can always look through previous versions of our website at The National Archives.
We want to hear from you
We’ve based the new site on feedback and research from people who use our website for a variety of different reasons. We want to make the information on our site easier to find and clearer to understand. If you have any feedback about the new website, we’d like to hear from you. We’d especially like to talk to you if you’d like to take part in research to improve this website over the next few months.
