How do you launch a brand new Lottery funded initiative? Coast Care is a new initiative created to train, support and resource volunteers to contribute to the management and conservation of the Northumberland coastline from Berwick to Amble. We were asked to help launch their initiative and create a space where they could inform current volunteers about new events and sustain a drive to recruit new volunteers.

how we tackled it
We designed the site to make a real effort to help recruit new volunteers whilst making current ones feel included and invested in the projects Coast Care had.
Being active on social media meant that there was a great opportunity to utilise this in the new website; we wanted to help get people following and liking their posts but also using the site as a space to gain vital information.
Our CMS was then optimised to help them easily post new events and get information to users quickly and in a digestible format.
The website has been a big success and Coast Care has hit the ground running in recruiting new volunteers and starting new projects. As the momentum continues, we hope that the website will grow to become an even bigger source of information for people to get involved with their local community.
what they said
We’ve been delighted to work with Edward Robertson in Newcastle. The whole process of building and developing our website has been exceptionally easy and pain free, and the team took real care to listen to our concept, interpret our ideas and engage with us to deliver a fantastic finished product. Everything was delivered in record time with no drama, plenty of humour and bucket loads of professionalism. I can’t recommend them highly enough.
"Coast Care is a great opportunity to get the local community involved in a great scheme so we're really proud of the end result."
