Rebuilding a bespoke CMS and website for Southwark’s voluntary hub
Community Southwark is the umbrella body for the voluntary and community sector in Southwark. We support charities, community groups and individuals through capacity building, networks and training.
Community Southwark required a WordPress website rebuild to save costs, develop new features and functions and to improve usability for their staff and volunteers.
Community Southwark required their website to be rebuilt within WordPress within a strict period of time so they could switch from their previous SASS provider within a set contract period. This required us to rebuild and improve the site to a strict deadline to prevent the site being down. We also needed to incorporate requests for improvements from internal stakeholders at the same time. Finally, the Community Southwark website had a large volume of content and externally created articles that needed to be moved across to the new site.
Setup project coordination across all internal stakeholders
Set a strict schedule based around sprints to rebuild the most important aspects of the site first
Develop bespoke script that imported all of the old articles to the new site
We delivered a new site to the strict timeframe, while incorporating a range of new features and functions that improved the sites user experience and conversion potential. We also developed a bespoke backend to make the process of using the site easy for all Community Southwark team members. Finally we setup a series of website content management training sessions for the team and created an extensive user manual which they could refer back to when needed. Here is the final project website - https://communitysouthwark.org/.
