Charity Website Award - The Good Web Guide
The win follows the launch of our new website last year which was created by MacIntyre’s Communications Officer Agnieszka Rokita and the team at Grandad. The team were delighted to be recognised after competing in what the judges referred to as a ‘hotly contested category’.
Agnieszka Rokita said:
"As a small marketing team, we face an ongoing challenge of communicating our mission, values and support options in a way that makes sense to people in need of support, but also in a way that represents many different parts of MacIntyre.
This award means a lot to us, not only because it recognises our efforts, but more importantly it confirms that our focus is well reflected on our website. We also have a powerful tool in the system provided by Grandad Digital, which allows us to organise and manage our content dynamically - that's exactly what we were looking for when we decided to redevelop our website."
Sara Tasker, Instagram coach, author, iPhoneographer, social media influencer and judge at 'The Good Web Guide Awards' said:
"MacIntyre's regular commitment to blogging about the issues faced by their client group is really impressive and will be so valuable to their service users."
Tony Brennand, director of Digital Marmalade and judge at ‘The Good Web Guide Awards' added:
"MacIntyre: I like this site – definitely not as flash or innovative as the others, but VERY clear messaging, nice to navigate and doesn’t look too expensive (at first glance) but well put together - which is what I want my charity to be like – efficient, focused, clear aims and not over flash – so I think it really helps the charity stand out. A top job."
The final judge Matt Isherwood, Managing Director of fuse, part of themission Agency commented:
"The MacIntyre website is a fantastically rich resource for a wide range of audiences. The clear layout and categorisation of content means the site is simple and intuitive to navigate and find the support required. The 'News & Blog' content is regularly updated to ensure the content is fresh and engaging. A very worthy winner of a hotly contested category! Well done MacIntyre for your fantastic website and the great services and support you provide."
