DeVA Local Charity Helping Individuals And Groups Across Devon
-DeVA Case Study
The old website is very outdated and very text heavy & lacking in engaging. Webpage headers are unclear and the user journey very difficult to follow.The old website did not have enough images ot call to action messages. It’s also lacking in photos & missing a personable feel. It was built on a very outdated platform that the client could not access to edit and didn’t offer the best experience for internal & external users. It was also not on secure hosting making it vunerable.
After speaking to the client I had a clear insight into what the new website needed. A fully interactive and easy to navigate website that had a clear message and was bright with lots of call to actions.
Helping individuals and groups build healthy, vibrant communities across Devon.
Formed as a partnership between six local charities in 2013, Devon Voluntary Action has remained at the heart of Devon’s voluntary and community sector ever since!
We are a partnership organisation which provides individuals, not-for-profit groups, and social enterprises with the support they need to help improve their local communities. Driven by our desire to create positive social change, we help individuals and organisations to develop skills, build relationships and obtain resources which will help to make their communities more empowered, dynamic and connected.
After spending a decade at the centre of Devon’s Voluntary and Community Sector, we have gained a nuanced understanding of our local communities. This has enabled us to help local individuals and groups in a wide range of ways specific to their varying needs.
“Thanks to Kathy our website got the reworking it so desperately needed! She quickly grasped what we were trying to achieve and provided an easy to understand proposal about what she could do to help us. Not only did she make our website polished and easy to navigate, we knew exactly what see wanted from us and as a result, our website is now more user-friendly and clearly reflects our values. Thank you!“
