WEBSITE SURVEY - help us plan development of this website

BWARS Website User Survey

The BWARS website is several years old and has not kept pace with technological developments. For instance, we know that the current website does not work well on mobile phones. So, BWARS needs to commission a new website but we need to understand how you use the current website, and what you would like to see in a redeveloped website.

We are very keen to hear your views. Your answers will help us prioritise the development of the new website so that it meets your needs.
