netXtra website solution campaigns for new out of school club opportunities for young people

4Children, a national children’s charity at the forefront of support for children and young people from birth to 19 within their local community, has relaunched the website for its Make Space campaign. Make Space, run by 4Children and supported by Nestlé UK, campaigns to transform out of school club opportunities for young people between 11 and 19 years of age. To support the campaign’s new image – which reflects its innovative ethos – 4Children commissioned suffolk-based not-for-profit website specialists, and current 4Children supplier, netXtra to develop the new Make Space website - www.makespace.org.uk.

With almost 1300 Make Space clubs across England, the refreshed website by netXtra sets out to raise the profile of out of school clubs and campaigns government policy makers for increased funding and better support for young people – including through the Make Space for Health programme. It also enables new and existing non-member clubs to register free on the site, receive regular e-newsletters containing policy and good practice updates, and access a helpline and information service.

Amongst its wealth of appealing features, the site offers visitors an Information Library which holds a large searchable repository of useful articles, press releases, recipes, podcasts, publications, research, forms and newsletters. This is proving to be a great facility for members and other visitors who want to gain fast access to a mine of useful information. Users of the website can also submit case studies, news and ideas through an easy access online form.

Other popular areas on the site include ‘quick polls’ and the online surveys tool. Quick Polls are a visitor-engaging feature that allows site administrators to create single question, multiple choice surveys relating to topical issues, directly on the home page of the site. Participants can then view all results upon submission of their poll. This is highly beneficial as it enables users to interact and engage with the site as soon as they land on the home page. Similarly, the online surveys tool allows Make Space members, young people and other stakeholders to take part and proffer their views on issues relevant to the sector, through consultations, questionnaires and other activities.  

In commenting on the new site, Acting Head of Publications at 4Children, Pauline Phillips, said “We approached netXtra as we needed an appealing website that communicates effectively with our stakeholders whilst also clearly demonstrating the Make Space campaign ethos. Once again netXtra have delivered us an outstanding feature-rich solution that supports our aim – to make a difference in the lives of all young people across the country and enable them to achieve their potential.”
