Following a formal tender process we were delighted to be selected to work with the guys at Gofal. As with all new projects at Spindogs our initial goal is to ensure that we have a thorough understanding of the organisation that we need to represent. Learning about the organisation as a whole, the challenges and the goals is one of the best parts of our job. We love learning about our clients!
The guys at Gofal didn’t let us down. Over and above the briefing and background documentation that we had been provided with up front we worked with the guys to understand the overall structure and setup of the charity, how the various services work and how end users benefit and most importantly how Gofal make a difference to their service users!
Understanding the scale and diversity of a subject such as mental health was an eye opener, not only around how it can affect people, but just how many people it effects in the UK.
Our joint goal was to improve the credibility and image of the Charity, whilst providing a platform to increase donations, participation, and interaction.
Our initial focus was on providing a clean and simple structure for the website that visitors would find easy to use, which of course had to fit in with the existing Gofal identity. Alongside this we collectively agreed that it was really important that people visiting the website are given a range of options that would allow them to find out more about donating and support the charity.
Events, News and Services were also all important features that we wanted to highlight and ensure website visitors could find them quickly and easily.
And the end result? Well you can judge it for yourself, check it out (in English or Welsh) and let us know what you think.

Here’s what Gareth from Gofal had to say:
“From my initial meeting with Director Liam Giles, I was impressed with Spindogs’ passion to do the best job they could for their clients. They are a friendly, forward-thinking company with great ideas and are specialists at what they do.
I thoroughly enjoyed working alongside Liam’s fellow Director, Dave Morgan, and the Spindogs team on the design and build of Gofal’s new website. They really took their time to understand our philosophy and incorporated that superbly into the design of the site. I found them open and collaborative in their communication the whole time, always looking at ways to improve and deliver the best website they could for Gofal.
We have had nothing but positive feedback on our new website, people have commented on how easy it is to navigate and how it has captured the true essence of Gofal. Their content management system is one of the most user friendly systems I have experienced, making it a simple process to edit and upload new content. I would strongly recommend Spindogs to anyone wishing to develop a website that can enhance their business. “
