Communicating impact is vital for charities – but how can we communicate impact in creative ways, both internally and externally?
This is an exciting session where these questions (and more!) are answered. You’ll hear from charities who are doing brilliant impact comms.

We’ll have a creative icebreaker to better understand who’s in the room.
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, you’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 shared 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.
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 shared how Bipolar UK embraced first-person blogs and vlogs, alongside podcasting, e-learning, webinars (and more!) to creatively communicate their impact as an organisation. You’ll also hear how the charity worked creatively with a diverse team of ambassadors and media volunteers.

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.
