News: 20 Years of Women Connect First
Date Added: 01/03/2021 @ 11:40am
Women Connect First was established on 1 March 2001, St. David’s Day, to empower Black & Minority Ethnic Women in Cardiff and South East Wales by offering a range of services and training in order to improve their livelihoods and employability. The organisation has moved on since and has expanded its services.
It is their mission is to empower and improve the lives of disadvantaged BME women and communities in South Wales, to help them realise their full potential and make a positive contribution to Welsh society.
At Doive Designs, we have been working alongside Women Connect First for several years, initially simply helping them to update and maintain their current website. However, at around the time of the first national lockdown we agreed to work together to help re-design the website.
The new charity website, which still uses the incredibly popular Wordpress CMS (Content Management System) has a new and highly customised theme using the charity's colour scheme and photos. The lockdown did slow down the re-launch which went live in March 2021 to coincide with the 20th Anniversary of the charity.
