After working with Girlguiding Durham North for the past few months, we’re proud to announce that their brand new website is live!
The past few months have been an exciting time for Scout Websites as we’ve worked together with Girlguiding Durham North on their brand new website.
The County, based in the North East of England, approached us with the hope of creating a site that is on brand with the current Girlguiding guidelines and also displays their County’s individual identity with features that are sleek and sophisticated, yet easy for their members to use.
Creating a design that’s synonymous with the Girlguiding brand is essential to maintain consistency and to promote the organisation’s identity as a whole for their local areas.
Taking advantage of the specific design elements, fonts, colours and imagery, makes for a website that’s unique but also beautifully on-brand.
Girlguiding Durham North came to us with a comprehensive sitemap in mind that allowed us to adapt our design and functionality to fit their County needs without compromising on essential content.
Did you know: All of the functionality that’s available for our Scout Websites sites, can be adapted for use across Girlguiding websites?
From important news, events and photo galleries to bookable adult training events, joining, nights away notification and booking forms to a local group finder, the possibilities for your Group, District, County or Region are endless!
As with all organisations that have a duty to protect their young people, privacy is a main priority for Girlguiding Durham North.
All of the pages, news, events and photo galleries can be password protected to ensure maximum security, keeping sensitive information private from non-members.
Leaders are also given login information so that they are able to be fully in control once the site has launched. This means that they can update any information, edit, maintain and upload content and adjust any additional pages that may need extra security along the way.
“From the moment I approached Scout Websites for a quote (very competitive), right up to our launch this week, I have experienced nothing but helpful friendly staff who have worked super hard to get the site functioning in a smooth and dynamic way - just the way I always hoped it would be.
They are very knowledgeable with great ideas for the site. They were patient with me even when I had daft questions and when I needed things changing. They were also good at explaining things to me in a way I would understand, especially over technical matters.
I already had a good idea of what was hoped for and I had written extensive content. Scout Websites were, therefore, able to work swiftly to put this all together. They were in constant contact to ensure we both understood what was required and how they were able to deliver this for our County website.
I would most certainly recommend the company to any other Girlguiding area!”Lynne Carr, Girlguiding Durham North County
