Doing our bit for the community - working with Cambridge Womens Resources Centre
Catfish Web Design and photographer Helena g Anderson recently collaborated on a website for a local community organisation, Cambridge Women’s Resources Centre.
CWRC had recently rebranded with a fresh new logo and needed a website to match. The existing site was looking rather dated and it wasn’t easy for the CWRC staff to update themselves. The website is a crucial tool for the organisation, not only to provide information on the services offered but to keep supporters abreast of events and fund raising initiatives.
We were really excited when CWRC approached us with the project of revamping the website. Unfortunately, there was not enough funding available for us to provide them with the functionality we felt they needed to use the site to maximum affect as a marketing tool as well as an information hub. So, we decided to donate our services and become sponsors.
Helena’s photographs of the team and centre users were taken on and around Mill Road very early on a Saturday morning. We were thrilled with the results.
The new website design has impact, but is welcoming and engaging for visitors. There is a dedicated news section with the latest items flagged up on the home page. The content management system now means that staff can quickly and painlessly edit information, change images and post up news items. We hope it will make their life easier.
Noreen Jones, Trustee: "I was delighted when I saw the revamped Cambridge Womens Resources Centre website. It is so bright and fresh and really welcoming which is what CWRC is all about. I was also very impressed by the colour scheme which makes the site very accessible for people like myself, suffering from dyslexia. It is so often difficult to find your way around a website and even read the text. The CWRC site presents no such problems and is a joy to visit."
