Help with searching
The search bar lets you search using any combination of category, keywords and location.
Category - use this if you know the type of results you want to find (e.g. Childacre, Day Nurseries)
by Keywords - type one or more words to describe what you are looking for (e.g. housing)
by A-Z - use this if you know the name of what you are searching for
More Advice on Keyword Searching
Typing in a word or a few words into the Keywords box brings you back all entries that contain at least one of the words you have entered. You can also use special characters to limit your results more closely.
The plus sign (+) before a word means that each of the results must contain that word, so the example search below brings back only records results containing both of the words housing and advice, for example:
Using double quotes (") around your search words brings back only results that contain those words as an exact phrase, for example:
Using search filters
Once you have your search results, you may be able to improve them still further by selecting one or more of the search filters which are displayed in lists to the left of your results. These filters allow you to limit results by subject area (such as 'Money Matters'), and by user group (such as 'Carers') and so on. The more use you make of the filters, the more focussed your results will be.
