The Website Project

This exciting project has definitely been an amazing learning opportunity for all involved. The old Voice website (as great as it was) had run its course and it was time for a change. We shortlisted 2 design agencies and Strudel came out as the clear winner meeting all our objectives. Then the hard work started. We held a focus group involving London staff and young people working together researching their favourite websites and what makes them so great! Next on the list was to find out what our funders, Trustees and other supporters wanted to see on the new website – this was done by calling each individual and asking them a series of questions such as, “what do you think are the best features of the existing website?” and “what would you like to change?” We got a very positive response and were able to move forward with this information.  In July we travelled down to Swindon to get thoughts and ideas from our young people in that area – which too, turned out to be very positive and extremely useful.  The young people got to design how they would like the Voice home page to look like and which features are important to them.  A similar workshop was run with our London young people.

A big thank you to all that were involved in the making of this fantastic new website.  Let us know what you think of it!
