Web Design for Charities

and Voluntary Organisations

We particularly enjoy the web designs that we have done to help charities, voluntary organisations and non-profit groups. When going the extra mile for a customer (which we do on a frequent basis), it is nice to feel that we are contributing to worthwhile causes.

The corner-stone of our business is customer satisfaction. We put a lot of effort into ensuring customers have a professional, modern design that suits their needs and works for them. We also provide a very good after-sales service and are available via phone, text or email at all reasonable times.

We are proud that much of our work is now coming from recommendations.

Individual, Non-Template Design

We never just change the colours of an existing template. All of our websites are designed from scratch to the exact needs and requirements of your charity or voluntary organisation.

Professional, Carefully Structured Websites

We spend time with you working out what message/s need to be got across. Then we discuss with you different ways of using design to achieve this.

Affordable Websites with a Flexible Pricing Structure

We offer registered charities in England and the UK a reduced-price website design service. There is no VAT. We also extend these discounts to voluntary organisations and not-for-profit groups.

See below for a summary of our charity discount prices for web design and hosting.

Brochure Site or Content Management System?

We are equally happy to create either a brochure site or a Content Management System (CMS).

  • Brochure - we create a complete online site for you and we make updates at your request. Ideal for those who dislike using computers themselves and for sites that rarely change.
  • Content Mangement System (CMS) - gives you the freedom to add and delete pages, to change page content and to have a blog and news posts. Other functionality such as an Ecommerce facility can also be added.

Medical Justice

www.medicaljustice.org.uk

Customer: Medical Justice are a small UK charity who work to protect the health rights of immigration detainees.

Project: They wanted an affordable but professional website redesign that would help detainees, volunteeers and other visitors navigate quickly to the appropriate pages.

Results: We created a Wordpress content management system with consistent colour-coded menus and pages. The bottom set of menus were appropriate to each set of pages. The main top-level menus were always visible.

We used subtle shading to break up long complex pages. Large bold blocks of shading drew attention to important links or actions.

We created all of the initial pages and posts so that Medical Justice could simply edit, and add to, a fully working site.

Customer's verdict: “We are very happy with the website and have had lots of positive feedback about how much easier it is to use!”

Not Your Style?

No problem. During the consultation stage, we explore both your design preferences and the needs of your charity, voluntary organisation or not-for-profit group. Then we create individual design(s) to meet your objectives.

Flexible Charity Web Design Prices - Designed to Combine Affordability and Quality

We offer reduced prices to UK charities and we do not charge VAT.

Most websites are fixed-price designs and we offer three types of service.

  • Gold website design service - for those who wish to take advantage of our charity discount and yet still have a website with more sophisticated design features and a more complex structure.
  • Silver website design service - for websites with a medium design complexity.
  • Bronze website design service - for those on a tighter budget who are happy with a simple, attractive design in a style of their choice.

All websites include a responsive (mobile-friendly) design, search-engine submission and on-page SEO features.

As an optional extra, a copywriting service is available.

Multiple Versions of Each Image

To be discussed *Notes As standard, a single large image will scale to the size of the device. Obviously, however, the size of image that is required for a mobile is different to the size of image that is required for a large PC screen; some devices also display more dots per inch than others. As the size of images downloaded affects the page loading time and the image clarity, some customers may wish to pay for multiple images to be created (and tested for) for each image.

Where We Are

Unique Websites are based near Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk

Unique Websites are based near Bury St Edmunds, close to the Suffolk / Norfolk border. As we are close to the junction of the A14, the A134 and the A34, we are convenient for many customers in East Anglia.

We have worked successfully with charities and companies in other parts of the UK. In these cases, a mix of phone calls / Skype and emails has worked very well.

As with all of our customers, we are at the other end of a phone or email whenever help is needed. We pride ourselves on offering very high levels of support.
