In 2016 Superhighways worked with Volunteer Centre Sutton to design, develop a  website to make it easy for local people to volunteer.

With over 50,000 people volunteering in Sutton at least once a year and contributing to over £20million to the local economy, Volunteer Centre Sutton decided the centre needed an inspirational website to support this vibrant community.

 

 List of issues with the old site

  • It was a bespoke  website that they could neither update nor make changes to its structure.
  • There was no social media integration
  • Concerns were raised how accessible the site was and whether people were getting a good user experience
  • And a key question was "Could Sutton's residents find volunteering opportunities easily?".

 

Required from a new site: 

  • Easy to update
  • Something to inspire volunteers into Community Action
  • Integrated contacts management database for volunteering
  • Clear navigation and content layout
  • Blogs, new feeds

 

The impact of the new site for the team has been 

  • We can update and add content really easliy
  • The site looks vibrant and represents our identity really well
  • The integrated, database, where local groups can register their volunteering opportunies, has resulted in more general enquires from Sutton's residents in local opportunties 

 

" We are excited about our new website.  We really feel that we are serving local groups better through having a better design website......thanks to Superhighways who interpreted and implemented our vision. "

 

This is the link to the new Volunteer Centre Sutton website.  And you can listen to Matt Little, Digital Inclusion Coordinator at Volunteer Centre Sutton talk about working with  Superhighways and how we helped VCS redesign the website and increase engagement.
