Platform81 Launches New Website for Girlguiding Stockport!


Platform81 are a proud Stockport agency and love working with local businesses and organisations, so when we were approached by Girlguiding Stockport we couldn’t have been happier to help…

GirlGuiding Stockport…

Girlguiding Stockport, which is run by a team of over 400 volunteer adult leaders, provides stimulating and imaginative programmes for over 3000 girls of all ages across Stockport.

Following frustrations with their previous website, which had become outdated and was no longer serving their needs, Girlguiding Stockport contacted us following a recommendation.

What we did…

We worked in partnership with the volunteers to design and build a brand-new website which gave a more modern and accurate representation of the organisation today.

While it was necessary to keep within the UK-wide Girlguiding brand guidelines, we built a site that was appealing to its target audience and worked as a platform for Girlguiding Stockport to showcase what they do best.

It was imperative that the new site was built with usability in mind to ensure that the volunteers could access and update the site quickly and easily to keep it up-to-date. In addition, a members only log-in area required a complex back-end build to facilitate the sharing of management documentation and event ideas amongst unit leaders.

Happy clients…

Anne-Marie Wynne, Assistant Commissioner at Girlguiding Stockport, said: “As a volunteer for Girlguiding, the development of this website needed to be as straightforward as possible. Platform81 were fantastic in guiding me through the jargon and advising us on the best way forward.”

“Nick, James and David were really understanding and patient with me. The team also facilitated meetings outside of normal office hours to facilitate the voluntary nature of our role. Throughout the process, Nick and the team have been incredibly helpful, friendly and very responsive to our needs.”

The result is that Girlguiding Stockport now has a website that it can be proud of and that my leadership team can easily navigate to ensure it accurately depicts what we are doing across the whole organisation.”

Take a look…

We’re delighted with the result and are glad that the team at Girlguiding Stockport are too. Make sure you check out the brand new website at www.girlguidingstockport.org.uk and let us know what you think!
