Joint Statement on Digital Umbrella shimAdd News55 to Scrapbook
As from the Monday 21st February 2011, High Peak CVS have transferred Digital Umbrella web design and hosting operations to the well established Sheffield based ICT Social Enterprise ESP Projects Ltd. We are pleased that Digital Umbrella services will continue in this challenging climate and we wish to reassure customers that you will receive an excellent standard of care from ESP and your experience of your website will remain the same. Indeed we are pleased that one of our developers, Andy Irvine has been taken on by ESP. There will only be changes if you do not currently pay any hosting fees or if you actively choose to relocate your website elsewhere.

The transfer includes Digital Umbrella’s I-CMS system, Intellectual Property Rights and customer base. ESP has a proven track record around ICT support and web development including the contract with NAVCA and over 200 other third sector organisations. High Peak CVS wishes to thank all our Digital Umbrella customers during our seven years of operations and wishes you all the best for the future. ESP Projects in turn extends a warm welcome and is looking forward to working with you all in the near future. ESP will be in touch with all Digital Umbrella customers in the forthcoming weeks.

New Sites Launched shimAdd News51 to Scrapbook
Recently we've launched two new sites for our clients: Cumbria CVS and Partners in Practice.

The Cumbria CVS website replaces their old website and allows the staff to update any pages on the site at any time. Many of our modules were included on the website, including News and Events, Vacancies, and Documents Repository.

An added feature of the site is a fully customised Members Directory that the CVS staff can update with their own offline Database at any time, ensuring the information is always up to date.

Why not visit their website today?

It features a completely customised directory of providers that are organised by their own ambitions and aims, colour coded for ease of access.

The website was made in conjunction with CVS Cheshire East, NeuroMuscular Centre, and the Central and Eastern Cheshire NHS, and was launched alongside a hard copy that is also available.

Homelessness Charity Launches New Brand and Website Care of Digital Umbrella shimAdd News34 to Scrapbook

Threshold, the Oldham based homelessness charity, launched their new logo, branding and website today at a packed AGM - with all of the work being carried out by Digital Umbrella.

Digital Umbrella was initially selected by Threshold back in the summer to design their new website. It became apparent to the organisation that the new website was also an opportunity for the organisation to re-brand, and subsequently over the last six months

Digital Umbrella has worked closely with Threshold, providing a valuable service: designing the new logo and brand, promotional items including folder, pop-up banners, A1 posters and a range of information leaflets.

These were all revealed to service users and stakeholders by Threshold at their AGM earlier today, and very well received. More information about the organisation’s website requirements, and how we met them, can be found in the presentation here.

Digital Umbrella Sign up to CircuitRider Principles shimAdd News33 to Scrapbook

Principles of CircuitRiders have been published, and Digital Umbrella is proud to be able to sign up to them.

Circuit Riders, e-Riders and other IT professionals working with charities, non-profits and other VCS organisations have for some years acknowledged that there has not been a single statement of the principles by which they work. The idea of having these has been discussed at various conferences and meetings in the UK, US and internationally but without an overall agreement. Until now. A set of principles of CircuitRiding has now been published, and Digital Umbrella is pleased to sign up to these.

The principles complement the social objectives and ethos in the way that Digital Umbrella operates.

The principles can be found here.
