All the usual updates on our blogs and guidance sections.

No major feature updates this month. We have made some housekeeping updates as follows:

  • All the latest blogs
  • We have reshuffled the deck a little on our main menu
  • Guidance Pages updated with recent blogs
  • Glossaries updated with new terms and acronyms
  • About Page has been updated.


We noticed that our guidance pages were getting hard to navigate. As a result we have started to re-organise our guidance articles into categories which will hopefully make it easier to navigate and obtain the guidance you are looking for. We have also normalised the layout of each category. This will be updated and enhanced in future months as this area expands.

Other updates include:

  • Some reformatting of our Resource Library Page (it was starting to look tired)
  • Reformatted the Travel Advice Guidance page
  • Updates to our contact form and now added to our main site menu

  • Changes to our page footer:

    • Replaced the blog calendar with a list of blog categories, which we hope will help to find the information you require
    • Added a quick links menu
  • All the usual updates to our blogs and guidance sections.
