Business student gives children’s charity a fresh new look

A University of Bath student has given a children's charity a makeover as part of her Women into Enterprise business course.

Louise Billington is a volunteer Press and PR officer for Saltford-based Clover House, and used the rebranding skills she'd learnt on her course to help revamp their website.

She then used the example as a case study for her marketing portfolio for the course.

Louise said: "'Women into Enterprise is a practical course for women who are interested in working for themselves. I wanted to launch my own business providing marketing support to other creative and lifestyle businesses, and working as a volunteer with Clover House gave me the ideal opportunity to put my idea into practice."

The Women into Enterprise course is run at Carpenter House in Bath.

The charity, which runs a complementary therapy clinic for children with any physical, emotional or behavioural problem, wanted to update its logo and website so that it appealed to parents and also to educational and healthcare professionals.

Bath-based Imagine Design Associates were commissioned to work on the rebranding and website design, and Clover House is delighted with the results.

Practice manager, Gillian Gill, said: "Our previous website was starting to look a little bit dated, and we wanted something fresh and appealing that clearly explained what we do.

 "Clover House launched in 1996 and has achieved an extremely high success rate in treating children suffering from a wide range of health and emotional problems.

"As a small charity, our main problem is raising our profile so that parents are aware of us and know they can get in touch if they are concerned about their child's health or wellbeing.

"Our fundraising activities allow us to offer affordable treatment and our aim is to double the number of children we treat in the next year. We hope our new look will help us to do that".

The latest Women into Enterprise course has just started and runs on Friday mornings or Wednesday evenings. Late entrants are welcome. A new course will begin in February 2010 with a choice of daytime or evening sessions. The total cost of the course is £400.
