Violence Free Communities

Violence Free Communities promote violence free communities by creating projects, events and tools that support people to enjoy active participation in their community. Administration co-ordinator Tamara contacted Utopia as they wanted to update their existing website. A Content Management System (CMS) was also required so staff could easily update the site. The CMS platform chosen for this project was CMS Made Simple.

After discussing content and functionality Utopia produced a mock-up of the new site using the logo and colours supplied. This was fine-tuned and after the final Premium website was implemented Utopia entered the content from their old website.

Utopia set up MailChimp so they can send out monthly newsletters and added a subscription form on the website so visitors can easily subscribe to it. A donation system was added using PayPal to allow supporters to make a donation.

Utopia helped to move the website hosting to a new provider and a website form on the contact page allows visitors to easily make an enquiry. The new website is fully responsive allowing it to work across multiple devices like phones and tablets. Search Engine Optimisation was completed on the website pages and content. Training was given to staff so they could continue to update the site.

"We are very happy with our website update!  The whole process was smooth.  Loved the fact that communication was always in a 'lingo' that was easy to understand.  Utopia was always very responsive to any questions/concerns, going out of their way to ensure our requirements were met”, says Tamara. “We appreciated the improvements to the 'look of our homepage', the easy contact/donation forms throughout site and the much improved linkage to our social media. The content management system chosen is easy to use and the whole project was completed within budget and within expected timeframe."
