We support the local charity BUDS (Better Understanding of Dementia for Sandwell) through fundraising and providing business consultancy. As part of our consultancy support we recently created and launched a new website for them. You can read BUDS' press release announcing the launch of the new website below.
BUDS which aims to improve the quality of life of people living with dementia and their family carers in Sandwell has launched a new website.
The new website aims to be a hub where people with dementia and their families can obtain information and advice to assist them in living a positive and fulfilled life.
Robert Bruce, General Manager at BUDS said: “It was fortuitous timing in meeting with Lynsey and Chris from eStudious as we had planned to review the website as the old site was difficult to administer with a limited and cumbersome content management system.”
In addition to improving the user friendliness, the new website has a fresh new look with improved navigation which allows visitors to find the information they need more quickly and easily. “We have reviewed and updated all our information so that visitors can be confident that everything they are reading is as current as possible. In addition to providing information and advice on dementia, we offer a wide range of support services from weekly social clubs and memory group meetings to carer support services and training, and it was therefore essential that the new website was able to effectively communicate the various ways in which we can help, and I'm confident that the new website now does this”, Robert added.
eStudious company director Lynsey Bartlam, commented: “We take corporate social responsibility seriously and we are committed to supporting three charities; one local, one national and one international charity. BUDS is local to us and we decided to support them following a meeting we had where we saw the real value they give to families within the local area. It became apparent that we could assist them not only with fundraising but also with implementing process and system improvements in addition to building the website.”
Rob concluded: “I would like to thank Lynsey and Chris for not only investing their time and expertise in creating our new website, but also for the ongoing consultancy and support they are providing in assisting us to improve our operational processes and systems.”
Living with dementia can be difficult for the person experiencing the dementia and also for those around them. Further information about BUDS can be found at the charity's new website www.buds.co.uk.
