CFDG Re-Launches Website

11th August 2006

CFDG combines Charities Resource Network with core website to offer sector a one-stop-shop.

The Charity Finance Directors' Group's website has been re-launched this month, taking on the group's new branding and uniting all its online services in one place.

Visitors to www.cfdg.org.uk and www.thecrn.org.uk will have a unified entry-point, with the online Resource Network services merging with CFDG's other influencing, educating, networking and informing services. This now gives CFDG members and other professionals in the sector a one-stop-shop for all their needs.

"This new site will make it much easier for us to communicate with our members and the sector, empower them to know more about the issues that concern them and promote their views to the sector and beyond. As a membership organisation sprung from the networking of its members, this is good news for all of us." Tom Steel, Website and Information Officer

"With a small core team, thanks to the input from our members, CFDG has been punching above its weight for years - it was important to have a more flexible site-structure, so we can actually represent the full variety of CFDG services and activities on the web, and give us a good basis for our future plans. Now we feel we can tell the whole story of what we are about." David Membrey, Deputy Chief Executive

As well as the two main services - the membership site and the Charities Resource Network - being brought together, the site has been enhanced; with more attention given to policy, consultations, law and regulation. CFDG members can now download past meeting reports and presentations in an events archive. For Members outside the South East, region-specific pages have been introduced. Furthermore, CFDG's popular conferences now have their own space on the web, with information and presentation available from the previous 3 years. The site also benefits from an improved text-only version.
