Brief: Design & develop a membership software solution meeting key criteria, and manage the migration from the existing WordPress website.
This collaboration with Coast2Bay Housing Group, Sundale & Purpose Partners had the goal of advancing the Better Together Housing website to a fully-fledged membership website, creating a safe space for women over 55 years old to meet and source housing solutions from within their own membership community.
As new members join the site, we hope this initiative will make an impact into the issue of homelessness for this cohort and improve the lives of members for the better.
Project Testimonial From Fiona Malcolm (Purpose Partners):
Huw from Wrasse Industries is committed, flexible, knowledgeable, very reasonably priced and an all-round pleasure to work with. We came to him with a big challenge and he worked tirelessly to find the right solution for us and our member-based online platform. No question is too silly, or ask too small. An all round professional I would highly recommend Huw for any online platform needs. Five stars *****
In any project, our integrated website design solutions provide a pathway to move from the unknown into the known, and find a place where brand and functionality can arrive to deliver the business. This was an extensive project with multiple stages. Although we initially looked at a WordPress solution, it became apparent a more comprehensive integrated software would be the answer. It involved a rationalisation of brief, software vetting, design, development, migration, launch, research, graphic design, process planning, budget management, collaboration, problem-solving and communication.
Website Design Solution
Website designs are a combination of style and functionality. Since the Better Together Housing brand was already established, the focus for this project was in 4 parts:
- Clarifying the specific needs of the project
- Locating suitable software to deliver the platform
- Collaborative web design & configuration
- Migration and launch of the new website.
We delivered a solution built on the Toucan Tech platform, and included a public-facing website with a private members area in which participants can communicate with each other and search for a solution to suit their housing needs. There is also a comprehensive member management capability and CRM inclusion, creating a holistic, intrinsically design software aligned to BTH needs. Supported and planned, Better Together Housing is now ready to evolve into the future.

Supplementary Graphic Design
This project also included some supplementary tasks, such as the design of these pull-up banners for Better Together Housing, as well as statistical work & reporting.
Key Project Points
This project required a degree of exploration to develop shared understandings of requirements and to locate a suitably capable provider to develop the platform with. This stage, which we call ‘brief rationalisation’ is an essential part of all of our projects.
