The Scout Association is the UK's biggest mixed youth organization. They change lives by offering 6 to 25-year-olds fun and challenging activities, unique experiences, everyday adventure, and the chance to help others so that we make a positive impact in communities.
Scouts help children and young adults reach their full potential. They develop skills including teamwork, time management, leadership, initiative, planning, communication, self-motivation, cultural awareness, and commitment. They help young people to get jobs, save lives, and even change the world. Impressive stuff!
The 1st East Cowes Scouts website was just over 2 years old and now with the new brand coming the decision to come to me to make the change. Their old website provided an area for the sections and hall hire, their new site needs be able to do these features whilst also attracting new members and make tools for existing members easier to access.
A huge part of this website was to make it easier to amend and administrate. They wanted a backend that could be customized to their needs.
We settled on our own custom content management system (Cornelius CMS) to provide them with a more customizable experience than with a traditional WordPress website. It provides them with more ways to edit and add to their site.
The new website has given there online presents a new lease on life. A few months after the release of the site and it has been shown that there are more traffic and more session times than their old site.
It now gives their website a refreshed and on-brand look.
