Wythenshawe Community Housing Group was formed in 2013 by the merger of two existing housing associations in Greater Manchester. It provides homes and community services for more than 20,000 people. The group needed a fresh suite of websites to establish its new brand and create an online home for all its work.

When the group was formed, many parts of the previously separate housing associations’ business and community interests were run independently. The new suite of websites brought this all together with a crisp and consistent look and uniform style and technology.

We designed, edited, built and launched seven, linked news sites, including a central group site, two customer sites and four others spanning business and community centres and a children’s education service.

Relevant material from the previously separate sites was updated and ported across to the new domains. The whole process took just five months from start to finish, with the sites all launching on time and receiving great feedback from residents and other users.
