Website Development

We're committed to supporting community-minded organisations to challenge social isolation and loneliness in their communities through accessible, easy-to-use websites.

Our Mission: Online Visibility & Communities

Many community organisations are invisible (or not easily found) online. Because of the lack of visibility and unreliable online presences it’s much harder for people to find opportunities to participate in community activities.

How we helped Sowerby Bridge Fire and Water

We built a new website and created new content to showcase the aims of the Fire and Water charity, the potential use of the spaces, and the impact it has on the Sowerby Bridge community.

What we offer

We use an incredibly well-designed WordPress theme that has been specifically engineered to be accessible, easy to use and easy to update. It was originally developed to accommodate the needs of major UK-based charities, so we know it’s up to scratch!

You can see it out in the wild by visiting Reason Digital’s case studies (Thanks RD!).

What this means is that we can pass all of that value and expertise onto community organisations. So if you’re ready to take your online presence one step up from a drag and drop website that’s something we can offer.

Things you might be asking yourself

Yes you do. However, we’d hope that you’d want to stay part of our collective and help us improve the WordPress theme; be involved in community-minded digital pilot projects; and partner with other like-minded organisations to go for funding to improve the South Pennines digital landscape.

We aim to get our website quotes under the £1,000 mark, but if you need assistance with setting up other digital products (funding or events platforms for example) it might be a bit higher.

We are more than happy to help apply for grant funding for website development so don’t worry if the cost seems too high for your organisation. Get in touch anyway, and we’ll see what we can do.

In our experience, the needs of community organisations for a website do not vary dramatically. The need for bespoke development therefore is rare so we do regularly see community organisations paying over the odds for bespoke web development builds that aren’t necessarily needed.

We see our WordPress theme as something our customers collectively ‘own’ and develop with us. With any feature and security improvements then being available to all. Taking this approach means we can also make web development and support significantly less costly for community organisations and pass on the latest developments in online visibility and accessibility to community networks.
