Formartine Rural Partnership
Client: the Formartine Rural Partnership, Aberdeenshire. The Partnership provides funding and support to communities, groups and charities across the Formartine area.
Brief: build a new site for the new charity using the .scot domain, create content, structure and design. Information should reflect the work of the Partnership, the support the team can offer and funding local groups can apply for. People and groups should be able to apply for funding online.
Actions: we discussed the site and grant application process with the Partnership and what they wanted to achieve. We identified who would be using the site, especially the local communities, volunteer groups, charities and Aberdeenshire Council (who fund one of the schemes) and what information they wanted to know. From this we developed content, pages and a design. We wrote specific content that can be used by search engines (page titles and descriptions) so the site can be found easily online.
Special features: we developed a grant management system for funding applications. Groups, charities and individuals from the area can apply online, trustees can review applications and their administrator can report on the process through the system.
