So you’re a Scout or Girlguiding Leader! Who are we? We’re a team of experts in website design who are just as passionate about Scouting & Guiding as you are. We spend our time creating websites for Sections, Groups and Units.
From our Liverpool HQ, we work with leaders across the UK and worldwide. We create bespoke, functional, and beautifully designed websites for the Scout and Girlguiding community that solve everyday problems, whether that’s recruiting new members and volunteers, or engaging with existing members and parents.
Our team work from our Liverpool offices on projects worldwide.
We work with every kind of Section and Group: from a single Section to large Groups with every section and multiple same-age sections. You may be looking to us because you haven’t got a website, or you may be looking to make your current website on-brand and more useful.
Alongside working with Sections and Groups, we also create websites for Districts & Divisions, as well as Counties & Regions, and Campsites & Activity Centres, so have excellent understanding when it comes to designing a website with user experience in mind, and developing it all in WordPress (an easy to use content management system).
We solve everyday problems for The Scouts & Girlguiding
- Recruiting new members and volunteers
- Communicating with members, parents and leaders
- Allowing for event attendance to be booked and managed online
- Allowing for products to be purchased online via an online shop
- Integrating OSM & OGM to feed events and programme information automatically
West Monkton Scout Group continuously take advantage of extra functionality to make the most of their website. Take a look now.
As a Leader, the ability to edit your website yourself once we’ve gone live is key. We support you and the rest of your team as you become familiar with the website and we’re always on hand to answer any questions you may have and offer tips and tricks throughout the process.
Our pages are developed in bespoke templates meaning you’re able to add and remove pages easily, as well as change any content, from text and images to news, events, and downloads. And if you have parts of the site that are only for certain members, we can add password protection to any page you’d like to be hidden with just a few clicks!
As another bonus, we’ll also build everything responsively so that it works and looks great across any device from mobile to desktop and is completely thumb-friendly. This is essential in the smartphone age where over 60% of browsing is now done on a mobile phone or tablet.
“We used Scout Websites to replace our existing site which was in much need of a refresh! Previously we had built the site ourselves, but didn't really have the knowledge to have the quality of site we wanted.
I have a background in IT and unfortunately have experienced suppliers that start off sounding great, but turn out to be a nightmare when they have your cash. Scout Websites are not one of these! The whole process was very straight forward and responses to any queries were very fast.
We ended up having our site built end to end in less than a month. The team made us feel at ease and any changes we requested, even after the site was live, were made with no bother.
I would not hesitate to recommend them to other Scout Groups.”1st Datchet Sea Scouts
What is included, and how much does it cost?
We work on all sizes of projects, but we can imagine that you’re looking for a website that’s easy to manage, with dynamic news, events and photo/video areas, as well as being useful for your current members to assist you with keeping them and parents engaged. You’ll also probably want to recruit new members through your website. Let us know what you want, and we’ll make it.
Hosting and domain name fees are included as part of the cost, so you don’t have to worry about paying for these either. Whatever your budget is, and even if you don’t have one, come and speak to us. We’ll be able to help you out and advise on different payment plans, options and cost. Of course, if you’d like to meet with the team in person, that’d be fantastic too!
What are the next steps?
We understand that you’re a volunteer, and time is limited. Once you choose to work with us, we’ll keep in touch with you through our easy to use communication platform (BaseCamp) where you can upload content, documents, photos and anything else you’d like on your website. You’ll see your website as it’s created and we won’t launch your site until you love it.
It’d be great to hear from you, and we’ll look forward to it. Get a quote below, or give us a call on 0800 084 3079 or drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss.
