Civil Society and Not-for-profit
The civil society/not for profit sector includes charities, social enterprises and voluntary organisations which exist for the betterment of society. These organisations are increasingly involved in delivery of local public services in the UK. Here are some examples of websites we have designed to help such organisations work more effectively with their supporters and beneficiaries.
Hertfordshire Visual Arts (HVA) is a networking organisation for everyone in the visual and applied arts in Hertfordshire, helping artists in Hertfordshire to collaborate on marketing and promoting their talents to reach cultural and educational organisations and the general public. The Enterprise AB (EAB) team developed the site to allow members to register, pay online and update their online gallery. The site hosts internal communications mechanisms and affinity groups for like-minded artists. A unique feature of this site is the construction of a self-registration system for participation and advertising in the annual Open Studios event.
SOFT UK, Support Organisation for Trisomy 13/18, provides parental support and impartial information about this chromosome defect affecting 1 in 200 babies born in the UK.
Enterprise AB (EAB) developed a unique online sharing resource - working closely with the trustees to understand the needs of parents at every stage from pre-natal diagnosis to birth, caring and bereavement. eZ Publish provides password-protected access for members and trustees to online applications that help SOFT operate more effectively.
The Executive Forum Alumni is a voluntary-run organisation which provides free membership of a support network for executive level job-search candidates in Hertfordshire.
The Executive Forum executive training and support project uses this networking website to help its members stay in touch and share opportunities online. Members create, manage and promote their profiles, explore job opportunities, see local company details and identify local networking events in St Albans.
