As an agency which has worked with the likes of St John Ambulance, Pets as Therapy, Wood Green Animal Charity, Order of St John and Home-Start, we have a particular enthusiasm for, and interest in, third sector clients.
Never before has it been quite so important for charities and social enterprises to elevate their voice and preserve brand reputation.
So much has taken place in recent years which, sadly, has caused the charitable arena to be looked at with suspicion and doubt.
We’ve seen endless column inches about ‘fat-cat pay’ to chief executives; we’ve witnessed shocking stories around excessive pressure on potential donors and supporters, and we’ve been appalled by the revelations around unethical acts against people supposedly being cared for by individuals and causes.
Add to the mix the fact that funding via central government and local authority streams has clearly diminished for many charities, and the time really is critical if causes and organisations want to have their voice heard and be noticed for having either a monetary or volunteer-numbers need.
One of the charitable organisations we’re now working with, on our home turf in Suffolk, is Community Action Suffolk.
This umbrella membership body seeks to work on behalf of the many hundreds of voluntary sector groups and organisations throughout the county, in order to elevate their profile and create shared dialogue on issues and challenges.
Community Action Suffolk has this week announced the launch of its annual awards, which are sponsored by award-winning legal firm, Birketts Solicitors.
We look forward to working with CAS on the celebration of individuals and organisations at this special event.
It is the storytelling around these specific charities, campaigns and causes which help to inform the wider community about the phenomenal work which goes on in society on a daily basis – delivered by volunteers.
If you’ve got a charity which needs help with PR, media training, storytelling or crisis communications, please drop a line to Deborah, our charity specialist.
