Leeds-based Parallax has completed a website development project for a local homelessness charity.

The agency selected Simon on the Streets to benefit from the company’s annual charitable initiative and has planned, designed and built a bespoke website worth £40,000.

Key features include integration with JustGiving to take one-off and regular and monthly donations online, as well as allowing team members of the charity to easily add new content so the charity is now able to promote its corporate partnerships, events and fundraising activities.

Dario Grandich, director of Parallax (pictured above), said: “Homelessness is obviously a big problem and we want to contribute to the solution, supporting organisations like Simon on the Streets with what we do best so that they can do what they do best.

“We have supported St Georges Crypt over the last few years and when a Simon on the Streets trustee approached us for a quote to help fix the existing broken website, we knew we could help tell their story in best possible way with a new website and so we took it on as our goodwill project for 2020."

Parallax, which started as four founders in 2010 and has rapidly grown to a team of almost 40, has worked with global firms including NASA, Unilever and Leeds-based Smart Search.

Fahad Khan, development manager at Simon on the Streets, said: “We cannot thank Parallax enough for building us a fantastic new website. It has enabled us to promote our events, volunteer and fundraising opportunities easily and we’ve already seen an increase in people signing up to events which we’re now able to easily upload.”
