New source of funding information for Yorkshire

New source of funding information for Yorkshire

Community Matters (Yorkshire) has launched a new website that provides funding information to organisations based in Yorkshire.

Community Matters (Yorkshire) is a Leeds-based charity that supports communities, individuals and organisations. Its vision is to provide a sustainable and effective 'hub' of learning, support, advice and guidance. It provides a range of services, which are currently focussed on working with children, young people and families.

The charity has a database of funding information that it wanted to make available to subscribers via its website. It approached CITA to develop a web-based system that makes it easy for organisations in Yorkshire to find the funding information that they need.

The system we developed allows subscribers to sign up online using a simple form with the option of payment via PayPal, BACS or cheque. Once they have signed up, subscribers are able to browse the funding information and filter the results to match their organisation's profile. The website also provides a library of useful documents and resources to subscribers.

A subscription is currently £10 for the year.

John Wilson, Project Manager of Community Matters (Yorkshire), said:

"We are very pleased with the website that CITA built for us.  They spent the time to understand our requirements and as a result built a system that does exactly what we need."

Been Quiet Here, hasn’t it.

Transitlab has always been the sometimes blog, the blog that i did when I have Time, Inclination and Energy. Thats why it has been so quiet. So few times has this been true. Don’t be surprised if there is a flurry of posts, as I clear backlogs of thoughts in journals and documentation of shows. I haven’t actually been so unbusy….my projects shows that I have been around a few places.

My idea is to try and make interesting, or if not interesting at least useful posts.

Topics I am interested in writing about are super varied. From machine learning to bio printing.

Actually, however I love research, so please leave a comment on something you are interested in, and I will see what I can do!
