Having an up-to-date and accessible website puts you in the best position to raise awareness of your cause, recruit volunteers, and increase your fundraising. But managing a website can be hard, particularly when you don’t have a big budget or an in-house digital expert to turn to. Fortunately, you don’t need to throw your current website away and replace it with a shiny new one. You just need to spend some time with it, provide a little TLC with our support, and it’ll start to work wonders for you.
That’s why Media Trust, in collaboration with digital experts, Few and Far, have created a toolkit specifically aimed at small charities with little to no budget.

The Websites Unlocked Toolkit aims to help your organisation optimise your website with the latest low-cost tools and strategies, improving its accessibility and impact, and motivating your stakeholders to take action.
Through this toolkit, you will:

Discover ways to make your website more accessible.

Pull it all together with a clear action plan that will keep you and your team on track.
