“Charities cannot ignore the impact the wider economy is likely to have. Continuing pressure on public finances is likely to be passed on to charities which rely on government contracts or grants. At the same time fundraising charities may struggle to raise money from people as cost-of-living increases put pressure on disposable income.”
Civil Society, 2 JanuaryWe set out to attract big names in the Charity Sector to whom our social status would appeal. Early success came in the form of Barnardo’s, Adfam and Action on Addiction. Six years on these fantastic organisations are still with us joined by Shelter and VSO and most recently, Royal Voluntary Service, Marie Curie and Breast Cancer UK (BCUK). We have learned that our appeal goes beyond our shared values. Our flexible, IT enabled business model recognises the third sector is increasingly working with lean structures and competing financial pressures. Charities find in us an affordable, thinking partner, able to work right across the UK (and beyond), providing strategic yet practical solutions to their communications and service design challenges which help them drive income.
