Website workshops for Cardiff community groups

October 11, 2012 1 Comment »

Cardiff-based charities and community groups can get help and support to build a website with special workshops in the city centre today and tomorrow.

Web design initiative Jam is holding workshops to help organisations create a website from scratch, even if you have no previous experience of web design.

Jam says its websites can be used to display information about your organisation, video, images, maps and event dates, or collect donations. Groups will be given the information they need to update their website after the workshop, and plan future content.

The workshops will be held in St Mary Street, near Flares night club and McDonalds, in the Our Digital Planet Internet Station, between 10.30am and 1.30pn today and tomorrow.

Anyone interested should sign up here. Organisers suggest that you bring along a selection of images of what your group does on a memory stick which can then be put on your new site.

Jam websites cost £1 a week to build and run, but anyone who takes part in a workshop will get a free website for six months.

Jam maker-in-chief Kate Fox said: “Having an online presence is so important, but understandably many people don’t know where to start when it comes to building a website.

“This is where we can help. We really hope as many organisations as possible come to the session at Cardiff St Mary Street so they can start harnessing the power of the internet to help make a difference for their community.”

Jam is funded by the Nominet Trust – a UK charity supporting organisations that use the internet to create positive change.
