Taking pride in giving third sector and public bodies a voice.

This popular workshop is a must for any organisation needing a basic web presence but without the funds to pay for a web designer and web editor. This workshop is ideal for people with minimal experience (other than basic word processing) and does not require the use of expensive and complicated web design packages.


Using free or low cost online software delegates will design their own web site live during the workshop progressing to the stage where they can register a domain name and have the site live on the web (this can be for as little as £12 for a .co.uk address). As well as the technical aspects of designing and managing a website the workshop will cover the editorial skills and policies required to keep the site they create up to date, making it an attractive, living asset for their organisation.


Up to 10 delegates


Note: organisations booking this workshop should ensure computers and broadband internet access are available.


From £400 for a full day

Building and managing a web site on a shoestring

A foot in the door with on-line fundraising

Developing your online presence

Every organisation wishing to engage with supporters and funders needs an effective online presence, from its web site to its social networks.


The last few years have seen a domocratisation of the internet, with new tools that alloow organisations and individuals to create and manage their own web profile. These user friendly workshops can help improve existing web sites and guide those building from scratch.

The world we live in today is driven by social media - yet some organisations are getting left behind because they lack the skills to confidently use these new tools to engage their key audiences and stakeholders.


Using simple everyday language this workshop is designed to take away the mystery of using social media such as Twitter, Facebook and YouTube to encourage small organisations to embrace these tools and create online communities of supporters.
