Case study

For Social Work England, CDS designed a versatile digital toolkit in Umbraco to handle various content types. We developed page templates and navigational devices to deliver content responsively for mobile devices, and accessibly to WCAG 2.1 AA standards. We implemented Surface/API Controllers for federated identity (with Azure AD), GOV.UK Pay and Appian API, embedded interfaces for secure MyAccount content and implemented an online forms engine. We delivered user-friendly interactions with the public register, site and news searches, vacancies and approved courses. We are further integrating front-end and back-end systems to provide the first complete end-to-end digital platform for a regulatory body. Find out more about our groundbreaking digital projects on
