Wincott Financial Awards
The Wincott Foundation seeks to contribute to the better understanding of economic issues, principally by supporting and encouraging high-quality economic, financial and business journalism, in the UK and internationally. The Foundation believes that the media – print, broadcast and on-line – have an important role to play in reporting, explaining and commenting on economic and business developments. Accurate, objective and well-informed economic reporting and analysis in the media are essential ingredients of a well-functioning market economy.
Mabadiliko are a Community Interest Company whose aim is to promote discussion of race and understanding of the impact of unconscious racial bias on the lived experience of Black and other minority groups. This is achieved through Cultural Humility workshops where people of different backgrounds talk openly about identity and the issues that they have confronted in their lives. This non-judgemental approach is highly effective in giving people a deeper understanding of prejudice.

St Andrew Catford
St Andrews is a thriving church in Catford which holds big musical events for the general public. They came to us because they'd had a domain with no website for three years and wanted something done with it. We built this site using Astra with Elementor Pro. We incorporated the Youtube videos they were making of their services due to the lockdown on the front page.
2000 Community Action Centre
The 2000 Community Action Centre lies in the heart of Deptford. We built their website in 2019. It has a cafe with free internet which attracts a lot of local young people. It is an important hub in an area that is quite deprived of local leisure facilities.
From our experience visiting the centre it was clear that it would be good to take plenty of pictures to capture the friendly and lively atmosphere there.
Ladywell live is a local news site. It was commissioned by the Ladywell Assembly, which is one of the ward assemblies organised by Lewisham council. The purpose of the site is to be a resource of local news for the area, to increase a sense of the ward as a home for residents. The site is run by a team of local residents, not paid council staff.Catbytes were hired to build the site.
Honor Oak Community Centre
Honor Oak Community Centre is one of the largest community centres in Lewisham, based in Turnham Road. It is a popular venue for weddings and funeral parties, due to its large hall. It also hosts badminton, tae-kwon-do, clubs for older people, a digital drop-in, and a range of community organisations besides. It has hosted a series of events attempting to tackle the issue of knife crime in Lewisham.
Agents of Change
Agents of Change are a remarkable charity based in Romania who support people with special needs. Many of them were born in the orphanages of Nicolae Ceaușescu. Agents of Change manage a centre in a very remote part of Romania, where many people barter rather than use cash for transactions. At the centre their clients can engage in a range of activities, both social and practical. Agents of Change have also worked with businesses and private donors in the UK to get an eye clinic established which has enabled their clients to have free eye tests and glasses.
Dancing Ducklings are a children's dance club. They are led by Caroline White, a very dynamic and engaging teacher and entertainer of pre-school aged children. Caroline has been known to inspire a desire to dance in children who don't engage with other children's entertainers. We took over managing Caroline's website when she decided her current host did not suit her needs.
Ewart Community Hall
Ewart Community Hall is a community centre near Forest Hill. It belongs to the Ewart Road Housing Co-op. We built and host the Ewart Hall Community Centre website, as Ewart Hall has an office where Catbytes is based. The site was built in Wordpress using the Astra Theme, and Elementor Page builder.
Maureen Bishop's site is devoted to her passion for helping older people become more confident with computers. It also reflects her multifarious interests in music, design writing and therapy. She combines her interest in improving people's lives with her artistic nature creating a very lovable (if somewhat eccentric) concoction.
Stanstead Lodge is a gothic mansion on Stanstead Road near Catford. A former Darby and Joan Club, it is now a community centre and membership club for mainly, but not exclusively, older Lewisham residents. It hosts a range of activities from whist drives to modern dance which run at very low cost. It also has a cafe which is open to the public. Stanstead Lodge hosts a wide range of meetings and social events for community representatives and is an important hub in the area.

The Wildcat Wilderness is a community green space by the Ravensbourne River in Catford. It is a project of the Rushey Green Time Bank and was founded in 2014. It is filled with wild fruit, such as blackberries, plumbs and apples, and also has a vegetable garden, a beehive, and an outdoor kitchen. It is an excellent project for green fingered volunteers, and also for local primary schools, whose children come learn about urban wildlife and run through the pathways that have been cut through the thick bramble.
