Where To Go For - YMCA Downslink

The Challenge

One of their primary services, Where to Go For, is a vital information portal for 12-25 year olds looking for services in Brighton and Hove. Bozboz was tasked to update the existing platform, and modernise the website's look and feel, in order to better serve the young people in our community.

YMCA Downslink found they had outgrown their previous website and wanted to move towards a new bespoke and user friendly solution, taking the opportunity to update the aesthetics of the site in a special collaboration. Custom categorisation, campaign creation and content updates were key requirements of this exciting build.

The Results

Empowering YMCA Downslink with updated technology means they can continue to make a significant difference in young people's lives.

The website was recrafted using Laravel, making the site truly scalable and easy to manage day to day. All of the illustrations on the site were created by young people who have used YMCA’s services in the past, and featured Brighton and Hove's unique vistas. This inclusive process ensured that young people had a voice in this project and that the websites’ look and feel resonated with the target audience.

The inclusion of a prominent crisis button gives one click access to immediate help, which now features on every page. And of course, the site is fully responsive making mobile and tablet use very straightforward.

This collaboration with a fantastic charity allowed us to create a refreshed and vibrant site that delivers advice and much needed support to young people.
