Huddersfield Community Trust (HCT), a not-for-profit organisation based at The Zone in Huddersfield, have recently announced the launch of its new website www.huddersfieldcommunitytrust.co.uk
The newly designed site comes after a full re-brand earlier in the year which was carried out to raise awareness of HCT whilst also establishing individual brands for each of the six departments and encouraging the local community to engage with the range of services they offer.
The charity is responsible for all community sports and educational activities on behalf of Huddersfield Town Football Club and Huddersfield Giants Rugby League Football Club as well as a variety of initiatives including the Dance Zone, Elite Sports Education Academy and the National Citizenship Service.
Following intensive internal and external research, the new website is focused on the needs of the users;. it offers quick and easy access to information about each department and the sessions or services that they provide.
For the first time, customers of HCT can now book on to the ever-popular Holiday Camps online which encompass football, rugby, dance, gymnastics and musical theatre. Online bookings can also be made for children’s parties and hire of the indoor 3G pitches at The Zone.
Lisa Hewitt, CEO of Huddersfield Community Trust commented: “The new website is the final stage of our re-brand and we’re delighted with the results. Our aim was to provide Huddersfield Community Trust with a new brand identity, emphasising our focus on social inclusion and highlighting the six departments within; this has been achieved beyond our expectation across both the new branding and the website.”
“The website focuses on the services provided by each department to facilitate the needs of our customers; we are now able to take online bookings for our holiday camps as well as children’s parties and pitch hire which has been a key message from our customers.”
“With the new branding and website complete it’s an exciting time for Huddersfield Community Trust, we are beginning to explore partnership opportunities with local businesses as well as expanding our facilities to include sensory equipment to meet the needs of children with sensory impairment.”
