Websites and mobile

Public Life creates fully responsive, user-friendly websites. Our experience developing the features charities find most useful: donations, fundraising, events systems, google integration and email marketing means we can deliver you a highly professional product at excellent value. We are also experts at accessibility having worked with some of the country’s leading disability charities.



From full organisational repositioning and renaming all the way through to a logo refresh Public Life can support a wide range of branding needs. Our approach is creative and collaborative and suited to the resources and budgets of small and medium-sized organisations. We also offer a combined brand and web development package which offers excellent value for money - it’s an approach we recommend for smaller organisations. Please contact Mike Williams for more information or to arrange a meeting to discuss your needs.


Research and user testing

Understanding your audiences – their needs, motivations and aspirations – is key to developing communications that work. Typically our projects will involve a mix of surveys, focus groups and analytics of online behaviours ensuring we capture both qualitative and quantitative insights. Our experience and a nimble approach means we can deliver excellent value and make market research viable for smaller charities.


CMS development

We recommend WordPress, the leading Open Source publishing platform. Having worked with a wide range of systems over the years, we are confident that its wealth of features, user-friendliness and solid technology framework make WordPress the ideal content management system (CMS) for charities and non-profits. In addition to being licence-free, the costs of developing websites on WordPress are typically 20-30% cheaper than an equivalent deployment on the Drupal platform, its nearest Open Source rival, so it offers excellent value for money.

55% of the world’s most popular websites are built and managed in WordPress.

Marketing and campaigns

We have extensive experience supporting clients to deliver successful campaigns, from researching target audiences to developing appropriate success criteria, creating compelling content and quality creative ideas. The best ideas emerge through collaboration so we facilitate the creative process to enable the team’s ideas to be shared and developed.


SEO, AdWords, and social media

We can help drive targeted traffic to your events, publications, donations and campaigns as effectively as possible through a combination of search engine optimisation, adwords, and smart use of social media. If eligible we can support you to make the most of your Google Grant. We can also help to integrate digital within your wider marketing and relationship strategy, supporting the in-house team with training and skills development where appropriate.
