Starter websites

First-step websites for small voluntary groups. Prices start from £300.

FlexigrazeIn this increasingly digital world, no matter how large or small your organisation, it is important to have a web presence. A website lets people know what your organisation does and how they can find you. It can help you raise funds, deliver services and keep in touch with your supporters and clients.

What's included?

The package is all about assisting you to build your own website on a low-cost platform.

It comes in two parts: training and support. For organisations with minimal support needs and basic website requirements, a simple training session may be all you need.

 

Training (£300)

  • Initial meeting
  • Guidance on preparing website content
  • Three hours' initial training
  • Signposting to online documentation and support

 

Support (£450)

Eight hours of support over 6 months. This could include:

  • A further training session
  • Setting up your own website domain (e.g. www.your-website.org.uk)
  • Helping you to develop website content

Most organisations will need support and guidance around and beyond the initial training session, so we usually recommend the full £750 package.

The website platform

A website hosted on WordPress.com can be the ideal solution for small voluntary groups that want to create a low-cost professional site. This easy-to-use content management system powers thousands of websites around the world. With the support of our expert staff, we’ll help you to get the most out of it:

  • full control over the website content
  • unlimited pages
  • a choice of over 200 attractive templates
  • social media integration
  • support for mobile devices
  • integrated statistics

You may already have tried using Wix, 1&1 or other website building services. If you want to use such a service for your website instead of WordPress.com get in touch.

WordPress.com and other website building platforms will charge for extras like custom domain names and ad-free content, so you need to be prepared for some ongoing costs.

If your website needs go beyond our starter package take a look at our bespoke websites.

What others say

"After having some initial concerns about setting up our own website we were advised to contact CITA for advice. The advice and backup provided by them was first class and we are very happy with the result."
