Safe Space Group
Many of the inspiring team behind Safe Space Group had previously worked on the award-winning Upstanding Neighbourhoods initiative fighting extremism. The Fundraising Agency (TFA), a strategy agency who specialise in helping non-profits, had been assisting Safe Space Group to build 0n their success and take it to the next level: developing a comprehensive range of programmes, training & mentoring services to deal with safeguarding issues like bullying, abuse, radicalisation of all kinds and a range of other issues. They needed branding and a website.
It’s was a privilege when TFA appraoched us and asked us to get involved with the branding & website of newly-formed community interest company, Safe Space Group CIC.
Designed & Built for growth
Conveying authority, trust & safety was an essential requirement of this brief so it was reassuring to Safe Space Group that we are putting all new sites onto encrypted SSL by default, improving security and making a small but significant contribution to their SEO.
Every site we create runs on a CMS (content management system), and we offer multiple different options to ensure the most suitable tool is used. In this case it was WordPress, one of the most popular. It’s standard practice for us but especially helpful for new organisations & businesses who are likely to require changes to their website as they rapidly evolve.
As with all our websites, Safe Space Group was designed to adapt to different screens sizes for desktops, mobiles & tablets, etc and the custom theme we created included filtering options so their visitors could find the most relevant information quickly and easily.
Website for Community Interest Company (CIC)
Like everything we do, the Safe Space Group‘s website structure is built around their visitors’ needs who, in this case, are primarily interested in the services they offer, so the website leads with those. The home page of the Safe Space Group’s website presents visitors with a list of safeguarding training available, in a filterable grid. As an organisation often working with funding, the design had to convey the seriousness of what Safe Space does, so we avoided anything unnecessary and flippant design elements, keeping it clean, functional & professional.
