Roughly every two weeks, VANEL holds a WebClub meeting at which attendees are supported, encouraged and inspired to develop, redevelop or evolve websites for their voluntary or community groups. For anyone trying to work with websites or online technologies to support and develop their organisation, this WebClub provides affordable, practical technical support.
WebClub costs just £30per year (per person, not per organisation). For that you can attend up to 20 support sessions per year, access resources and call upon expert web support from Karl Elliott who runs WebClub and our IT Supporters Network initiatives.

What does WebClub cover?
WebClub is not a training programme. I assume people will attend when they can make it or when they’re interested in a topic on offer for that session.
So WebClub sessions offer:
Inspiration and Ideas to help your creativity flow
Introduction and reviews of useful (and often free) tools
Discussion around, demonstration and training of techniques
Step by step tutorials on common web development tasks
troubleshooting of problems and issues members might be having
critical friend – we all help each other to work through our projects
resources – both physical (laptops, magazines etc) and signposting (where to find help you might need)
And our scope includes:
options for getting an online presence (it’s not all just build a website)
technicalities of hosting and building websites
WordPress (most of our members use WordPress)
layout, user interface and graphical design
content and structure of your websites
maintaining and supporting websites
designing for purpose – making your site meet your visitors needs
managing the development or redevelopment of a website
social media use
use of the internet and online tools, resources and services to make your organisation more effective
and probably more besides…
Come along to a session to find out how it might be able to help you.
