What do you get with a free SurreyCommunity site?
We provide free websites to voluntary, not-for-profit and community groups in Surrey. There are no charges, no set-up fees, no hidden extras. All you have to contribute is the time to create, edit and run your website.
When you have one of our free websites, we will provide you with access to the SurreyCommunity system. You'll be able to login and edit your website by using your usual web browser.
The system includes a lot of features to help you build and run your site - we've listed some of our favourites below. You can find out much more about the system on our help pages for website owners. You can also see some of the features in action on our demo site.
The system is intended to be easy to use - you don't need to be a web designer. The main part of the system is similar to using a word processor (if you can type a letter or use an email program, you should be fine!).
Advanced users have the freedom to edit the html of pages, embed content from sites like YouTube, add css to customise their sites and use their own domain name.
Adding complex applications like photo galleries or discussion boards to your site takes just a few clicks. There are more than a dozen applications to choose from including calendars, surveys, blogs and file downloads.
Look and feel
You can choose the appearance of your site from a gallery of themes. Themes can be customised and recently added themes have been designed to ensure that your site will work well on phones and tablets as well as computers.
All sites on SurreyCommunity can have their own members who can participate in the site's interactive features (such as discussion boards or picture galleries). The person running the site can control what members are allowed to do.
The system keeps track of visits to your site allowing you to see how busy your site is, when people visit, which pages are the most popular and more.
We're friendly and approachable. If you have a problem or question about your site, we're here to help. You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have any questions about how SurreyCommunity works, if we support a particular feature or whether SurreyCommunity would be suitable for your group's website, contact us at email@example.com.
