Web Case Study: Restore York
Their Story. Restore York Ltd is a non-profit organisation that has served the people of York for over 10 years. The heart of their mission is to provide accommodation and support for people who would otherwise be homeless. With 9 houses and 35 beds, Restore York, provides homes for those in need. Although this is a core part of their mission, their vision is much more expansive, aspiring to not only provide shelter but to transform and restore lives. Because of this, Restore offer their tenants support and care with the opportunity to work long-term with a support worker, by which tenants can be helped in a wide-range of life skills from budgeting and self-care, to overcoming physical health and mental health issues, to gaining work experience and finding employment. By exploring the bigger issues and acknowledging that each person is an individual with unique needs, Restore offers a place of safety and security as a stepping stone to a person’s full restoration.
We used Mits to redesign our charity website and we are absolutely thrilled with the end result!
I'm a complete novice when it comes to designing and building websites, but Mits was professional and approachable throughout and she guided us through the whole process really well. The regular communication as we tweaked the design was really useful and the final product is something we're really happy with. We'd have no hesitation in recommending her to other people.
Website Brief. With advancing technology, the rise of social media and the heart to create greater impact, Restore York, needed a new website built on the latest technology that aligned with their mission and the needs of those who would use it. The new website needed to assist supporters, collaborative organisations and tenants to hear success stories and see impact; to easily access the information they need (events, FAQ, statistics etc.); to easily support this work and get involved or give financially; to easily promote Restore to others in their network and to get in contact appropriately.
Our Work. We built a brand new website from the ground up with a custom design using the latest Pro tech. With a portfolio to show off success stories, campaigns and team members, the new website also enables visitors to download referral forms and make online donations securely with credit card, Gift Aid and the option to automate their giving.
