Find a Group
Findagroup was commissioned by Interlink Rhondda Cynon Taff to provide a search for local groups, activities, facilities and services.
Integrating the extensive database of groups into the Findagroup website was key to the project, and Amity was tasked with building a bilingual site around this. The finished site needed to be usable by both the public searching for local facilities, and those facilities/groups themselves.
We developed the new website using the Craft content management system, taking advantage of its multi-language capabilities and its custom fields options for the directory listings. We worked with design agency The Arts Factory who designed a site that is personal to Findagroup.
Having imported the extensive database, we refined the site’s search engine so that users can search the entire directory by service, group name, distance from their home etc, and build a list of ‘favourites’. At the same time, public services and groups themselves can register and add/edit their own information, to ensure the database remains current.
The finished site is translated completely into Welsh and English, including the URLs themselves, making Findagroup.cymru an invaluable resource for residents in Rhondda Cynon Taf.
