CLIENT: Wandle Housing Association
SECTOR: Social housing marketing
SCOPE: WordPress Website Development
Our social housing marketing experience again paid off with a tender win for Wandle Housing Association. A provider of over 7,000 social and affordable homes, shared ownership, outright sale, and supported housing across nine south London boroughs. Supporting those who need a home, they help to tackle the shortage of good quality affordable housing and those who would otherwise not be able to afford or own their own home.
Wandle needed to re-purpose their web service and make sure that it reflects their current and future ambitions and complements their new online service – MyWandle. Designed a number of years ago, they were seeking a partner to help build and maintain an easy-to-update brochure style website for their customers.
Seeking a development partner with extensive experience developing responsive, accessible, CMS-driven websites, and able to work collaboratively with the incumbent design agency producing the design, GWCM responded to the opportunity. As an approved supplier on the UK Government’s Crown Commercial Service Digital Outcomes and Specialists Framework, we submitted a competitive tender and was awarded the project.
Delivered in just under 5 weeks, the new website is responsive, accessible and built with WordPress to allow Wandle to easily manage its content. It is split into three key areas, the main section, which provides information and services to customers, a corporate section and a careers section. These sections have their own stylesheets to allow each area to have its own separate branding, this removed the need of creating two microsites.
