Website Design Direction

St Georges, Lupset Community Hub, an independent charity and recognised community anchor, has been fostering positive change in Lupset, West Wakefield, and beyond since 1997. With a mission to improve personal and community health and wellbeing, the organisation provides a wide range of services and activities tailored to the needs of young people, families, and older residents. Seeking to enhance their digital presence, St Georges required a website redesign that would be user-friendly and easily manageable by their team, facilitating better engagement with the community.

Project Overview

Our collaboration with St Georges, began with a comprehensive analysis of their existing website and a series of consultations to understand their goals and requirements. The primary objective was to create a modern, accessible, and easily navigable WordPress website that could effectively highlight their services, events, and job opportunities. Emphasis was placed on ensuring the new website would be easy for the Lupset team to manage independently, allowing them to update content, add events to a calendar, and post job advertisements with ease.

The Clients Website Needs

St Georges needed a website that would:

→  Be easy to manage and update by their staff.

→  Feature an intuitive events calendar to keep the community informed about upcoming activities and events.

→  Include a section for advertising job openings and accepting applications online.

→  Provide clear information about their diverse services and activities.

→  Reflect their welcoming and community-focused ethos.

Our Solution

To address St George’s needs, we designed and developed a responsive WordPress website with a clean and modern interface. Key features and solutions included:

User-Friendly Content Management: We implemented a custom WordPress theme with a straightforward backend interface, ensuring that the St Georges team could easily update content, post news, and manage pages without requiring advanced technical skills.

Events Calendar: We integrated a robust events calendar plugin, allowing the team to effortlessly add, edit, and manage events. The calendar is prominently displayed on the homepage, providing visitors with quick access to information about upcoming activities.

Job Listings and Online Applications: A dedicated job section was created to advertise open positions. We set up an online application system where applicants can submit their resumes and cover letters directly through the website, streamlining the recruitment process.

Service Information: The website features detailed sections for each of St Georges’ services and activities, complete with descriptions, schedules, and contact information. This ensures that community members can easily find the information they need.

Welcoming Design: The design elements of the website reflect St Georges community hub’s welcoming and inclusive atmosphere. Warm colours, friendly imagery, and clear calls-to-action create an inviting online space that mirrors their physical community hub.

The End Result

The website redesign for St Georges community centre resulted in a significant improvement in their digital engagement.

The new WordPress site is not only visually appealing but also highly functional and easy to manage. The integrated events calendar and job application system have streamlined operations and enhanced community interaction.

The comprehensive service information and welcoming design have strengthened St Georges online presence, helping them to better serve the needs of their community. The project successfully aligned with their mission to provide a friendly, trusted space and to have a long-term positive impact on the local area.
