A contemporary website
to support community development.

Lifewise is an Auckland-based community social development organisation. They offer support and education across family care, social work, housing, health, addiction and disability services.

Lifewise came to us with an old, clunky site that they felt did not inspire action or cohesively display the information their audience needed to see.

We also helped them with:

  • 301 redirects to preserve existing SEO
  • Mobile compatibility
  • Google Analytics integration
  • Google Reviews feed integration
  • Google Maps integration via API
  • Ongoing hosting and maintenance

Old vs New: Homepage

Our solution

Using a robust customised WordPress platform, we crafted a website that better reflects the mission and message of Lifewise.

We worked alongside Curative in the rebranding process, and designed a vibrant, modern site that is easy to navigate and includes strong calls to action to volunteer, donate and attend events. Each of the Lifewise services are clearly explained and accessible through the site.

One of the most important elements of this new website was the building of a straightforward, compelling donation gateway. Visitors are able to donate pre-specified amounts or customs amounts of money, and they are able to choose which of Lifewise’s causes will directly receive their donation.

The new Lifewise website has empowered the organisation to communicate the benefits of their services and reach the people who need them, in order to further their mission towards a more equitable Aotearoa.
