Important changes to onesuffolk
From 1 November 2016, Suffolk County Council will cease to be the provider of the onesuffolk service and Community Action Suffolk (CAS) will become the new provider. The onesuffolk web hosting facility will not be disrupted by the transfer, and your domain name will remain the same.
This change is happening as Suffolk County Council can no longer continue to deliver the onesuffolk service, due to the cost and challenges associated with offering a bespoke website hosting facility.
CAS is a Suffolk-based charity and company with experience of providing IT and web services, as well as training advice and networking opportunities, to the voluntary and community sector.
As part of the plan to secure the future of the service, CAS will be introducing a small annual charge. This charge covers a small fraction of the overall cost of running onesuffolk and is necessary to ensure the service can continue. Charges will be as follows:
- £30 +VAT per annum for Voluntary and Community Groups, Charities and Social Enterprises
- £50 +VAT per annum for Town and Parish Councils
- £70 +VAT per annum for Businesses
CAS has some exciting plans for the future of the service with an upgrade to the onesuffolk web platform coming in the first year of them taking over the service. This will give you extra functionality and brand new modern themes for your website. Support wise, CAS has a dedicated helpdesk of 3 professsionals ready to help you with your website if you need it. CAS also will continue to offer a suite of online training materials already published on the website and in the near future offer training courses on the onesuffolk platform.
