The Plateforme francophone du volontariat [Volunteering Platform for French-speakers] (PFV) is a not-for-profit organisation whose goal is to encourage and facilitate the practice of volunteering. In addition to this promotional aspect, it also defends the interests of volunteers in French-speaking Belgium.
It is a pluralist structure, composed of both federal associations and small- and medium-sized associations. It carries out its actions in partnership with its members and the volunteers who work in one of its four centres, in Brussels, Namur, Mons, and Nivelles.
From Drupal 7 to Drupal 8: a new vision
As part of this project, the PFV entrusted us with the task of taking over their old site made using Drupal 7 and changing it both from a visual point of view (redesign of the UI) and also functionally (improvement of the UX, the user experience).
In October 2019, we replaced it with a brand new iteration made using Drupal 8, with many new features. Among them were: the management of organisations, members, and their roles, the addition of a dedicated space for the publication of geolocalised classified ads, and a library of tools for volunteers.
All these improvements were discussed during workshops with the client, during which we also worked together on the user experience (UX), various mock-ups (UI), and SEO.
