Budget website design for charities, individuals & community project
Packages start from £580
As a rule of thumb, we always recommend bespoke website design over an 'off the shelf' template based solution. However, in these uncertain times, we realise that not all businesses or individuals have the kind of budget - or for that matter, the time and resources that bespoke design demands.
To address this we have created a budget start-up package that blends template-based website development with bespoke design.
The start-up package is a complete website solution with a simple pricing structure and includes a CMS, news, responsive design, site planning and website hosting.
As much of the heavy lifting is handled by our starter templates, you can have your website set-up quickly with minimal fuss – and at a fraction of the cost of traditional bespoke website design. Our starter templates are bespoke, carefully crafted and hand-coded from scratch. The templates are robust, very flexible and can be configured and changed to meet your requirements. We do not use commercial/free 3rd party templates.

Frequently Asked Questions
Planning normally takes place via video calling apps such as 'Zoom', 'Teams' or 'Sykpe'. We are also very happy to plan your website over the phone and via email. Face-to-face meetings are not included. Download our Planning During Covid-19 booklet (105 KB).
Yes, if your current host meets the CMS requirements we can develop the website with your current host. If your website project requires more resources or a higher spec, a third party hosting provider can be recommended.
We can support you to register a domain name via a third party provider. We can also help you point/direct your domain name to the new website.
Stylistically, almost everything can be changed to meet your visual requirements. For example, you can change the website's colours, the masthead image, font-face, font-size, font colour and logo. To a certain extent, you can also modify the page layouts. For example have sub-page side-bars (inc sub-menu) placed on the left or right, show/hide news and display 2, 3 or 4 homepages 'teasers'. The navigation can be presented as a standard single-level or multi-level 'drop-down-menu' and of course the website page structure/hierarchy will also be changed to reflect your needs.
Additionally, you can extend the website further using 'add-on components' such as an 'events calendar', 'image galleries', 'content accordions' and 'donations/fundraising' tools.

Our start-up package does not include email, it's website hosting only. If you require email accounts, we can support you find a third party hosting provider that also includes email. Third party hosting starts from around £60 a year.
Yes, you will be able to manage the website from a Content Manatement System (CMS). You have full control over the whole of your website (not just the primary content section) so we use a CMS that enables you to edit and manage almost every nook and cranny of your site.
Your website will be developed and managed using ProcessWire.
The CMS makes it very easy to add as as many pages as you require.
Yes, we can combine different features and functions from various templates to form a completly new set of page layouts.
