Redesigning our websites
Mar 31, 2023
Background: Holloway Neighbourhood Group is a small charity that provides a range of in-person, online and blended services from 2 centres in the Holloway area of Islington. We support disadvantaged and marginalised local people, particularly those who experience mental health problems and older people. We have a small staff team of 5 full-time-equivalents and about 75 people get involved each year as volunteers. We currently have two websites, hosted on Weebly. These are: www.hng.org.uk and www.stressproject.org.uk. The core design of these websites has remained the same since 2014. The two websites look rather outdated, do not integrate with our database or point of sale system, include a lot of material which is duplicated on both websites and lack focus and functionality. The purpose of this project is to develop a website (or websites) which offer a coherent user experience for a variety of audience including the public, our regular service users, funders, potential donors & referring organisations. Main Goals/Targets/Requirement • Improve the UX experience for key audiences – ensuring that information is easy to find. • Integrating the website with our Lamplight database to enable searches for room hire availability and activity bookings – and gathering information from our forms from the website directly to the database. • Intergrate with the Square payment system and our Lamplight database to make it easier for us collect payments and connect them to the service provided, especially for therapy sessions and other services paid for by clients, and room bookings by renters. • Improve the visual content (images and video). • Restructure content so that the website more clearly reflects our Vision, Mission and Aims. • Review existing website provider and research alternatives. • Review domain names.
