What about contacting a company to do this for you, or if you haven't got the funds for them to do this, a meeting to scope out work required, i.e. steps then if you need help you can pick and choose the different steps.
Not sure where you are located but if in the UK I know some universities offer assistance for businesses who wish to develop in the digitial industry, a quick seach of the internet may bring up some uni's near you that do that.
Have you looked at grants to help you develop the idea, there are a lot for the tech industry at the moment https://www.gov.uk/guidance/innovation-apply-for-a-funding-award & https://entrepreneurhandbook.co.uk/grants-loans/
However my biggest tip would be to really research the idea and make sure its workable, have you spoken to people about the idea, if not why not look into free buisiness accellerator programmes like the one NatWest have, where you get free office space, meeting rooms, printers, and also have access to mentoring and other companies - you never know there may be a company who do jst what you need help in the office.

Thank you so so much for your great advice it's much appreciated! I don't have many 'contacts' so to speak but really think it would be a great idea as I would have definitely have used this website numerous times in my life. Do you have an email address by any chance that I could tell you about it to see if you think it's worth me pursuing? If not that's ok, I really approached the help you've already given me

I @Anna_fraser I'm probably not the person to speak to as I know nothing about web / app development I'm not technologically minded, however why not apply for the Natwest Accellerator programme theres only a few days left to apply for the next round and you may get some help from more competent people.
I'm currently looking for help with an intranet project and found that there is a 40% grant to assist me with that and they have contacts who would do the work via a government funded grant where I live (called Digital Drive Durham), there maybe something similar where you are.
