What is the 'Registered by' widget?

web page widget options

The widget is a logo with some coding behind it that can be displayed on any website.  Each registered care service has its own widget to connect directly to its own information pages on the Care Inspectorate website.

So, if you are a care service and you want to show your website visitors that you are registered with us, you can download the widget and display it on your website.  When your website visitors click on the widget, a new window will open that displays the Care Inspectorate information page for your service. Your own webpage will still be open.
