Web development training in Leeds

A very enjoyable day in Leeds on Saturday running the website training course that I’ve been piloting.

A lot of interest and enthusiasm from everyone who attended, confirming my belief that a website can be a real benefit to refugee community organisations (RCOs).

As well as discussing what makes for a good website, we also looked at Weebly.com, one of the free online website building tools – another is Yola.com. For organisations with little or no money to spend, these tools offer one of the best ways to get a site up and running.

The Chadian Community Centre, who attended the London training in September, have (with a little help) set up a site using Weebly – it will be interesting to see if any of the Leeds RCOs do the same.

Show refugees you believe in them this winter

This winter thousands of refugee men, women and children are rebuilding their lives in the UK, will you show you believe in them?
