Amaze wins ‘Website of the Year’ at Prolific North Awards

We’re hugely proud of our work on Childline’s new website. So we were especially delighted to see it scoop Website of the Year at the 2017 Prolific North Awards.

When Childline asked Amaze to put children at the heart of its digital services we developed a transformative website that increased Childline’s reach, helped its counsellors target resource more effectively, and gave children a wealth of new ways to find help and support, free from barriers.

At the award ceremony, held at Manchester’s EventCity on 11 May, the judges said they “particularly liked Amaze’s approach, which was anchored on identifying and determining what young people actually wanted from the site and how they wished to interact across different channels.”

Sam Keith, Senior Digital Production Manager at Childline said, “We set a challenging brief of using digital to break down barriers for all children, regardless of age, ability or capacity to articulate feelings. Amaze saw the opportunities the brief held for transforming the service we offer children and young people across the UK - and for helping our volunteers. Together, we believe we’ve created something very special – and I am delighted that Childline’s website has earned award-winning recognition.” 

 Jess Hempsall, Account Director at Amaze said: “The Childline project has been extremely close to our hearts, so we’re thrilled to see it win Website of the Year. But we’re even more delighted with the results the site is delivering. To know that, every month, 12,000 more children and young people are contacting Childline as a result of our work makes us feel extremely proud.”
