Shakti is Scotland’s leading black minority ethnic women’s aid organisation, offering help for BME women, children and young people who are experiencing, or who have experienced, domestic abuse. Shakti’s website was in need of major re-development to make the important information on the site more accessible to site visitors. Shakti also wanted to be able to manage the content themselves on their new site.

We worked with Shakti to develop their new website through a serious of team workshops. These worked through each phase, developing a new site structure and outlining key content for the new site. We developed a new look for the responsive site. We wrote new text and organised bespoke photography for the new site, and tested the site with users, organised hosting and arranged for the domain name transfer – and finally, we provided training to key team members in how to edit and update the site.
