Website Design / Branding Volunteer(s)

To support the Thames Valley Partnership in the next, exciting phase of growth!

What we do:
Thames Valley Partnership is an established charity of over 25 years, based in Buckinghamshire with service delivery primarily across Bucks, Oxon and Berks and occasionally beyond. Working through a team of staff (50+) and dedicated volunteers,we offer a range of services to support those affected by crime (both victims and offenders), address the roots/causes of crime and provide an intervention in the right way, at the right time to help reduce cycles of abuse and re-offending behaviour.

Our staff and a growing army of dedicated volunteers offer advocacy, emotional and practical guidance/support and restorative processes where appropriate -to help repair and heal the harm done.

We work closely with other charities,the voluntary and statutory section and criminal justice agencies to share good practice and knowledge and to offer a joined up, collaborative approach and real solutions. We have a solid reputation, sound credentials and our experience enables us to see both the bigger picture and the immediate need — working strategically to influence policy and effect positive change as well as delivering support to our service users, on a day to day basis 'at the coalface' where it really matters.

Can you help us?

The Task:
We are aware that we need to improve and bring up-to-date our 'outward facing' communications — starting with our branding and website. Our current offering is fragmented, in need of a face-lift and does not give clarity around what we do.

If we can find an individual who can support on both elements that would be ideal — but equally appreciate that we may need two separate volunteers/pro-bono support with different skill sets to achieve both the branding and the website build:

1.Branding:
We will be changing our charity name to better reflect the diversity of what we do. We have a name in mind (top secret at present!) but we lack the creative/designskills to visualise this into a branding concept and logo. If we can crack this and be provided with jpegs. and formats we can use in our future comms. materials and social media/website that would be fantastic!

2.Website:
The current Partnership website (CMS wordpress, maintained internally by our Comms. Manager) has served us well but needs a makeover to deliver a simple but impactful offering incorporating the new branding/logo. Two of our programmes under the Partnership umbrella have their own sites which have evolved over time and this also creates a confusing message — therefore these will go — leaving one clear, attractive easy-to-navigate website which can be maintained by our internal staff going forward.

How you can help:
We have a good idea of how we would like the new site to look/work and what features we would like to incorporate. We feel this project would suit either i) a retired IT/web developer with an eye for design or ii) someone in employment/agency with the relevant skills and experience, who has some time on their hands (or whose company may release them to work with us as part of their corporate responsibility/employee volunteering policy?) over the coming weeks.

This is an exciting step in the Partnership's journey and we would love to get the right person on board to share some of that walk with us.Our internal Communications Manager can help project manage, provide a clear brief and copy content, work alongside if preferred, assist with information such as hosting details etc to help pull everything together.

We can offer space to work in our Buckinghamshire offices near Haddenham, with our friendly team if you would prefer company, but equally appreciate you may wish to work at home — and that is no problem, we are happy to work around you as and when required through the process.

Timescale:
Ideally Feb -April design and build with a completion date by end April 2020.

If we can find the right volunteer by the end of January this would give us approx. 8/9weeks to meet, work on content, overall look, templates, build and hosting of the new site and two weeks early April for snagging, final proofing etc with the aim to have the new site live by end of April.

We will be able to keep the front end of the site up to date with posts, content and timely updates and minor changes going forward but lack the capacity and IT knowledge to handle the back-end site maintenance, software updates, plug-ins and fixes,how to back up etc. Therefore, if you are able to offer us a longer commitment to stick with us and help with ad hoc support, as and when, that would present the perfect solution. If that is not possible we can try to work around this — but it is important that we have someone who can offer a little commitment, understands our position and does not 'abandon' us immediately at the end of the task!

Our current volunteer (originally through IT4 Communities) who set up the current site has been with us for several years,and,we think,has enjoyed the involvement with our charity as much as we have benefitted from his time and expertise-however he also has other commitments and whilst he is happy to continue to support, going forward we think he deserves a little time off for good behaviour!

In return for your support we can offer you:

  • reimbursement for any expenses
  • an invitation to any free events or training coming up
  • the great 'feel-good factor'of knowing you are making a real difference to the lives of some of society's most vulnerable
  • a window into a whole new world you may not currently be aware of
  • and a few mean lunchesover the course of the project

Interested?
