Communicating impact is vital for charities – but how can we communicate impact in creative ways, both internally and externally?

Join us for an exciting session where these questions (and more!) will be answered. We’ll hear from charities who are doing brilliant impact comms, and there will be plenty of time for peer-to-peer networking too.

Want to share your perspective?

We’ll have a creative icebreaker to better understand who’s in the room.

11:15-11:35
Creatively communicating impact: The transition to digital reporting

Leap Confronting Conflict have over 30 years’ experience in designing and delivering highly impactful conflict navigation training programmes to young people and the adults in their lives. Over the years they used printed impact reports to share the stories of their success with key audiences.

In this presentation, we’ll hear how Leap Confronting Conflict transitioned from a printed impact report to a digital-only impact hub to more creatively communicate their impact. Maddy will share insights on how they developed this new impact hub, got buy-in internally and with key stakeholders, and the creative processes they’ve used along the way.

Maddy Weaver
Senior communications and policy officer, Leap Confronting Conflict

11:35-11:55
Peer-to-peer discussions

We’ll use breakout rooms for some much needed peer-to-peer discussions. 

11:55-12:15
How sharing real-life stories can bring facts to life

Bipolar UK is the only national charity dedicated to empowering individuals and families affected by bipolar, and peer support is at the very heart of their work. Bipolar UK works closely with lived-experience volunteers to amplify the voices of the bipolar community and bring the facts to life. Sarah will share how Bipolar UK has embraced first-person blogs and vlogs, alongside podcasting, e-learning, webinars (and more!) to creatively communicate their impact as an organisation. We’ll also hear how the charity is working creatively with a diverse team of ambassadors and media volunteers.

policy and communications manager, Bipolar UK and co-author of ‘Bipolar Disorder – The Ultimate Guide'

About the Creatives Group

This networking group is for professionals working in in-house creative teams (of one or more people) within UK charities and not-for-profits. It’s a gathering of creative leads, editors, publications managers, designers, production folk, content producers and more.

The group meets three times a year to focus on a common challenge. The format of the meetings is one or two presentations on a specific topic, followed by small group discussions, providing a combination of best practice and peer-to-peer sharing.

The events give you the chance to meet your peers, compare notes on workplace practices and share successes, ideas, challenges and inspiration. The group is designed to encourage networking and peer to peer support, sharing issues in a ‘safe’ environment.

If you’d like to be one of the first to hear about these events, please email events@charitycomms.org.uk  to be added to the mailing list.

If you’re interested in presenting at a future event please contact Vanessa.
