Building a website for a charity is the same as, yet subtly different to, building a website for a business. I've worked with charities since 2017 so I understand their unique challenges - I can help you and your charity to get the best out of your website.
I'm happy to work with you in whatever capacity you need. In the past, I've helped many other not-for-profit organisations by
- providing training,
- fixing hacked websites,
- building web sites from scratch
- or even helping them resolve disputes with their suppliers.
Why is it different working with charities?
Charities face challenges which businesses don’t. They can have an erratic income because of funding challenges, or have to work with an enthusiastic but often unskilled volunteer workforce, or maybe their service users have physical or mental challenges which can make it difficult to access a website.
I can help with all of those challenges.
I can design a site that achieves your objectives and fits your budget.
I can help you to look after your site, either as ongoing support, or just ad hoc help as and when you can afford it.
I can also provide video training which you can use to train your volunteers.
If you would like me to talk directly to your committee, or to provide extra information asked for by your committee, I’m more than happy to do so.
I will build your site using the latest accessibility guidelines so that service users get the most they possibly can from the site.
And I provide a substantial discount for charities so that you can put as much money as possible towards helping your service users.
Why do I enjoy working with charities and their websites?
Because charities are committed to what they do. They’re committed to providing the best service they can for their service users, and that’s what I do too.
With charities, it’s not just about the bottom line, it’s about getting a website that enhances their service, a website that can be used by people who may have physical or mental challenges, a website that delivers what the charity needs it to deliver.
Free websites for charities
I don’t generally work for free, though I always do the best I can to keep my prices down.
But every year I choose a charity to donate my time to - free, gratis and for absolutely nothing.
In order to qualify you must be a registered charity or community group (no CICs or social enterprises), but other than that all you need to do is to give me a call, tell me about what you do, and I’ll let you know if I have any availability.
