This aesthetically-pleasing website with plenty of useful functionality contributes towards a major part of Richmond Scouts’ five year plan.
The District, based in Greater London South West, has 25 Scout Groups with almost all having at least one Beavers Scout Colony, Cub Scout Pack and Scout Troop. Richmond Scouts, as they’re also known, is home to 11 Explorer Units, a local Scout Network and two Active Support Units. The Scout Groups vary from regular Scouting to specialist Groups such as an Air Scout Group and two Royal Navy recognised Sea Scout Groups.
The District recently embarked on a five year plan, from 2018 to 2023, to reflect the UK-wide five year plan created by The Scouts. One of the main points in Richmond’s plan is to transform their digital and online presence. Richmond Scouts approached us with a clear goal of launching a website that would display their wealth of activity, Groups and information for their District.
Through launching an entirely new website in the Skills for Life branding, many other elements in their plan can now be implemented by using some of our functionality, such as:
Richmond upon Thames’ team worked collaboratively throughout the whole process. This means as many team members were involved as possible to get the site built and launched within a short time frame. This also helped with the team learning about WordPress before the website went live. The District also takes advantage of our post-launch support for anything they come across that they need assistance with, and we’re always happy to help.
“Great team to deal with to get the job done at an affordable price. We had several objectives as a part of our new 5 year plan - and improving digital information was a key focus. Firstly to boost our presence in the community, facilitate new membership and new volunteer enquiries. And secondly to provide a forum for existing or new leaders to provide a one-stop shop for useful information such as training, permits and enhance Leadership Scout-to-Scout information such as sharing activities - rather than these ideas being lost in minutes of meetings. We had a good idea as to what we needed and Scout Websites were able to quickly turn these ideas into a developed website which was then easy to further develop locally.”Richmond Scouts
