A VOICE for Your Community
VOICE is an easy-to-use website builder available free of charge to all community, not-for-profit, and voluntary organisations.
VOICE enables you to add and update your website content quickly and easily with no technical expertise required. All you need is a computer, internet connection and a browser. VOICE has many interactive modules such as picture galleries, discussion boards, petitions and surveys, which you can add to your website with a single click.
Although Newcastle upon Tyne has not signed up to VOICE, a limited number of free websites are available to communities in this area.
VOICE for Local Authorities - Promoting Community Engagement
Several Local Authorities and community organisations use VOICE to engage directly with their local community groups.
By having their own independently maintained VOICE portal they improve relations with their local community groups, as well as sharing and benefitting from the experience of other VOICE subscribers.
