Apply for a free website
If you are a voluntary, community or not-for-profit group providing services to people in Surrey, you can apply for a free website on SurreyCommunity.info.
You could use your free website to publicise your group and its activities, or even provide your services online! (Take a look at some of the groups in our A-Z or our demonstration website to get an idea of how other people use their SurreyCommunity.info sites)
If your group already has a website, you can add your group's details to our A-Z instead. Your A-Z entry will include a link to your website.
Step 1: Check that you are eligible
To create a website with us you must be one of the following:
- A community, voluntary or non-profit organisation geographically based in Surrey.
- A community, voluntary or non-profit organisation geographically based close to the border of Surrey and providing services to people in Surrey.
- A district, borough, town or parish council in Surrey.
- An elected member of a county, district, borough, town or parish council in Surrey.
- A national community, voluntary or non-profit organisation providing services in Surrey.
If you are not sure that your group fits into one of the categories listed above, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for advice.
You might also want to read our page of questions and answers about our free websites.
Step 2: Registering as a SurreyCommunity.info user
Before you can use SurreyCommunity.info to set up a website you have to register with us. If you are already registered with us then you do not need to re-register and can skip straight to step three.
You can register with our online form.
The form is very short and only takes a couple of minutes to complete.
Once you have completed your details, you will automatically be sent an email containing a link. When it arrives click on the link in the email to confirm you have received it and complete the registration process.
(If the email doesn't arrive within a few minutes of submitting the form, please check your email program's junk mail folder. If you can't find the email there, contact us at email@example.com. We'll need to know your name and the email address that you used to register with.)
Step 3: Applying for a website
Go to the SurreyCommunity.info and login using the login link at the top of the page.
Once you have logged in, click on the Apply for a website link on the left of the SurreyCommunity.info homepage.
An application form will appear on screen. It is slightly longer than the form that you used to register and you should allow about 5 minutes to complete it.
When you have completed the form and sent it, you will normally get a reply within two business days telling you whether your application has been successful or not.
