We can help you gain positive media attention in this crowded and competitive sector.
Communications strategies for not-for-profits
As well as short-term headline grabbing initiatives, we specialise in creating longer-term communications strategies for not-for-profits. This multi-strand approach ensures your organisation’s public relations message continues to resonate with key stakeholders, fundraisers and donors year after year.
We deliver reputation management and public relations assistance for the following types of not-for-profit organisations: faith, social care, education, charitable trusts and foundations, military and international development.
Faith and interfaith organisations are responsible for some of the country’s most successful community and social action projects, yet the incredible work they do can be overlooked.
We have worked closely with a wide range of religious organisations to help them achieve their aims.
We develop thoughtful campaigns focused on purpose and values to help them build their reputations, raise their media profiles and form long lasting connections with other religious groups.
The PR Office has built up significant experience in the healthcare sector, particularly in regards to social and elderly care.
Our clients trust us to advise them on media relations, marketing, and how to build effective communications strategies around what can be sensitive and emotive issues.
As well as marketing communications campaigns, we are also able to develop focused public affairs campaigns, helping them to raise their profiles and shape the policy agenda.
The PR Office works with organisations across the education sector: from individual schools to groups of academies; from educational charities to campaign groups.
The breadth of our activity in this sector reflects our range of clients. We have:
- supported successful planning applications
- secured extensive national coverage for awareness campaigns
- driven thought leadership programmes across the sector’s press
- raised the profile of individual schools and academies
Our reputation management and PR experience also extends to crisis management, supporting schools and education bodies as and when issues arise.
We are able to excel in these areas thanks to our established relationships with the specialist education press, as well as relevant correspondents and reporters within local and national media.
Charitable trusts and foundations
Whilst many charitable trusts seek to publicise the life-changing work they help fund, others prefer their charitable giving to remain anonymous.
The PR Office work with philanthropists and charitable trusts and foundations of all sizes and mandates, to assist them in identifying projects to invest in. We also assist with managing their public and media profile and engagements.
Every communications programme is designed to align with the culture, ethos and purpose of the individual, trust or foundation.
