We are very happy to announce that our new website is now live! Please have a look at it www.rls-uk.org
So what's different?
1) We wanted to go for a calm and uncluttered website as we felt the old site was too complicated. So the new website is easier to navigate, easier to read (larger text), and easier on the eye overall.
2) The new website has a more contemporary feel to appeal to wider demographics, age, gender etc
3) We refocused the hierarchy of information and content.
4) The new website is a responsive website so it looks and functions the same on all devices, including smartphones, iPads, etc.
5) Online membership - When a new member wants to join they can now complete an online membership form. They will then be prompted to pay via Paypal.
6) The new website has a 'blog' which will allow us to feed news stories etc directly and more frequently - it will be easier to update and all updates will automatically be shared to Facebook. it also will allow us to invite guest bloggers e.g RLS Specialists to write their own pieces, which will then appear on our website and Facebook page etc. You can also search for news stories much more easily, like via category (advice, info, news, events etc).
7) Give as You Live is now on the new site, so you can make donations to us as you shop! Give as you Live is a shopping and price comparison website. Every time a sale is generated through Give as you Live, retailers pay commission. At least 50% of this is passed on to RLS-UK. The Give as you Live site lists each amount that the charity will receive so that you are able to choose the store which donates the most. As an added bonus Give as You Live donate £5 to us for every person that signs up and spends their first £10 online. All of the big stores are included - Tesco, John Lewis and M&S, to name but a few - so take a look to find out what you can do to help.
Although the website looks completely different visually, it is in many ways the same content but will new, much better functionality.
We would like to offer our sincere thanks to madebyphil.com, who spent many weeks designing and building the website as a donation to the charity!
