Built with your Peace of mind in mind

  • Based on our years of experience

    We take the hassle and confusion out of building a new website, so you've got one less thing to worry about. We've spent many years working for charities, and many more building websites for them.  

    We've made a lot of the decisions on your behalf, and set up these sites to be the best combination of technology and functionality for small charities.

  • Standing on the shoulders of giants

    Our sites are built on the industry-standard WordPress platform which powers nearly a quarter of websites on the internet. Backed by a community of hundreds of thousands of developers.

  • Security

    The security of your site is expertly nailed down to keep it safe from hackers and malware. And if you subscribe to our website care package we'll make sure that your site and all its software is constantly updated to the latest versions - the best way of protecting it from malicious programs that seek out vulnerable and insecure website code.

  • Donation processing

    Hassle-free, secure donation forms that comply with Payment Card Industry (PCI) data protection requirements.

  • Website development contract

    We provice a legally binding, mutually signed contract for the development and deployment of your new website.

  • Ongoing support

    Subscribe to our cost-effective website care package for ongoing support and peace of mind.

Future-proof

Open-source

WordPress is ‘open-source’ software developed and maintained by thousands of people across the globe, for free.

There’s no licence fees to pay and the software is constantly being improved.

Infinitely extendable

WordPress can be extended and customised to cost-effectively meet any requirement your charity might have in the future.

You’ll never outgrow WordPress or its functionality.

Free to choose

You’re not handcuffed to using any company (including us!). Unlike using something like Squarespace, Wix or an agency that has its own Content Management System - you’re free to take your business elsewhere.

The WordPress marketplace is a very competitive one so you’re spoilt for choice and cost-effectiveness.

FAQs

  • How does the website development process work?

    Download our process diagram to find out.

  • Which features are included?

    You’ll get a mobile-friendly WordPress website that easily enables your staff to add pages, news items, blog posts, case studies, fundraising events, jobs, donation forms, photo galleries and more. We’ll work with you to customise the logos, colours and fonts used, and we’ll pick the layout options that work best for your content.

    The sites include our selection of the best premium WordPress ‘plugins’ that extend your site’s functionality, security and search engine visibility.

  • Who are you?

    Charity and Biscuits is a ‘collective’ rather than a typical web agency. We’ve spent years working for charities, not just building sites for them. Our main focus is on building bespoke website solutions for charities as we enjoy diving in and working in partnership with them to produce content and designs that will get results.

    But we know that there aren’t many good options out there for charities on a tighter budget and with more limited ambitions. That’s why we launched this WordPress charity website package.

  • What can I customise?

    Quite a lot. These sites aren’t designed to be cookie-cutter replicas of each other. The colours and fonts can be changed to suit your brand, and the layout can be tweaked to show off any strong images you have, or to make bolder use of typography for example.

    There’s other elements that we’ve chosen to lock down, making decisions on your behalf based upon the best user-experience. Too much choice can be bewildering and you’re not an expert!

  • How long does it take to build the new website?

    In our experience, the most time-consuming part of the process is the clients’ content creation - getting all the words and images together for each page.

    If you have got all your content ready to go then we can build and launch the site within three weeks. It more typically takes clients a couple of months though to fill the staging version of the site with all the required content.

  • What if I want a custom feature or functionality that’s not included as standard?

    These sites are built to be extendable, so there’s almost certainly a way to add on any functionality you need. We’re happy to advise you about that on a case-by-case basis and advise of the most appropriate solution, and give you a quote for the project if need be.

    We’ve built online shops, multilingual sites, JustGiving style sponsorship pages etc in the past. They’re quite time-intensive jobs though and they’d push up the price of the charity website packages too much to include them as standard.

  • What’s the difference between this charity website package and the custom sites you build?

    Our custom WordPress sites tend to cost £5-15k. For that price we do an in-depth ‘Discovery’ phase and we’ll build the site around your content and to meet the charity's objectives.

    On a much smaller budget you’ll do more of the work yourselves and it’s a case of fitting your content into the site, rather than vice versa. You don’t have fine control over every last detail of how the site looks because it is not being custom built from scratch. Design can be a very subjective matter and if you want to be very particular about how each pixel looks then this probably isn’t the solution for you.

  • What happens after my website launches?

    We’ll provide 30 days of tweaks, bug fixes and additional training as part of our standard contract. After that we recommend that you subscribe to our ongoing maintenance package. This costs £90 per quarter and covers:

    • Regular updates of your WordPress software and plugins. These updates are frequently released and applying them in a timely manner is the most important means of keeping your site secure.
    • Automated 24/7 monitoring of your site’s ‘uptime’. We will receive an email if your site or server is down for some reason.
    • Use of our ‘developer’ license for many of the premium WordPress plugins we deploy on most of our sites rather than buying your own single-site license (this alone saves you more than the cost of our maintenance package)
    • Regular, automated backups of your site. These will be stored in a secure ‘cloud’ location separate from your web server.
  • As a small charity we were not simply looking for a new website but for someone with relevant knowledge of the charity sector who could possibly advise and guide us throughout the process.

    We were lucky to find Ben through an online search! He made things so much easier for us and was able to anticipate our needs, understand our expectations and drive the whole process.

  • Knowing that Ben had worked both at the coal face and with charities, was a real bonus for us, as we were struggling to find a developer who ‘knew charities’ locally.

    I would highly recommend Ben, and I hope to work with him again.

    Melissa, Macmillan Cancer Support (Jersey)
  • Whereas with some developers you have to be a little wary to make sure that they aren't just making up or overpricing technical fixes, Ben is very honest and straightforward, and we all trust him to tell us what's necessary and what isn't.
