A new look for Reach Volunteering

We’ve been making some big changes to the Reach Volunteering website which we plan to launch in January.

Our website will have a whole new look and feel and be easier to use. As always, we will be keen to hear your feedback, so you can let us know what you like and where you think we still need to keep working.

What changes are we making?

  1. We have upgraded the look and feel of the site, including developing a new visual identity.
  2. We have simplified the navigation, so people can find what they’re looking for more easily.
  3. We’re working on our resources, so that they are easier to read (and to find).
  4. We’re editing our content so that our copy is clearer and less wordy.

Why are we doing this?

Our website is at the heart of what we do. We’re proud of our service, but we know our website could be better, and that we don’t always explain who we are and what we do as well as we could. The way that we display information does not always do justice to the fantastic volunteers who join us, or the great trustee and volunteering opportunities that charities post. We have been gathering feedback and have used this to inform the new design.

What next?

Once we have launched the new site, we will be looking at how well it’s working, and what more we could do. We will then move on to improving other elements such as the search tool. As always, we’ll be working closely with you to explore what the issues are, and we’ll be testing solutions as we go, until we’re happy that they work from your perspective.

Here at Reach, we are always keen to hear your thoughts, so drop us a line with any feedback to: jthorne@reachvolunteering.org.uk
