A brand-new website, built for the borough’s young people, by young people, launches this week.
ZILLO, which replaces the Council’s former site for young people ‘Teen Wirral’, is a cutting-edge platform designed by computing students at Wirral Met College, with modern features including a fully interactive events map, news page, links to professional wellbeing, advice and support pages plus opportunities for young budding writers to submit their own articles.
Supported by staff in the council’s Youth Matters team, young people will be empowered to take control of and shape the site, while sharing and contributing on the topics that matter to them.
ZILLO has been built by Wirral Council in a partnership with Wirral Met’s Computing and IT level 3 – 5 students with the support of the college. The website is fully mobile-optimised and includes full accessibility options to enable access across the site to people with learning difficulties and/or disabilities.
The website will also be a space to encourage budding and aspiring ‘young reporters’ who will be writing and creating content for the site on the things that matter to other young people.
If you work or know any young people let them know to have a look at ZILLO whether it’s for news, events or if they are in need of some support.
The website is now live and available to access here: http://www.zillowirral.co.uk.
