Maximising social impact with strategic communications

The power of communications

How can you better reach your target audiences? How can you capture hearts and minds to support your cause? How can you influence the people with the power to make change? 

At The Social Change Agency, we know that strong communications are key to making social change.

Over the last year, we’ve been working with a diverse range of changemakers to maximise their impact through strategic communications. 

Our experience

We’ve worked with nonprofits including Save the Children, Beyond Detention, Purple Patch Arts, the Michael Streete Foundation, Ark-T, The Refugee Buddy Project, Central Women’s Aid, Making It Out, the International Tibet Network, WWF and RSPB, working on issues including migrant rights, supporting survivors of domestic violence, making learning more accessible and protecting nature.

We’ve created communications strategies, developed key messaging, facilitated communications workshops and trainings for staff and trustees and more.

Our highlights have included:

📣 Joining the International Tibet Network’s annual conference in Prague, to deliver a session on effective campaign messaging.

💰 Advising Making It Out on their crowdfunding campaign to create a memorial sculpture in Brighton for people who have lost their lives whilst homeless.

🍃 Advising WWF and RSPB on messaging for the development of the Save Our Wild Isles Community Fund, a fund to make it easier for communities to take action for nature in the UK.

🎅 Supporting Save the Children with their Christmas Jumper Day campaign, as part of the FCDO’s UK Aid Match programme.
