Finding a voice for Wales 

Speaking up for Wales in the context of the wider UK can be challenging, whether you’re working in the Wales team of a larger UK-wide charity, or representing a Welsh organisation within a wider sector. It can be hard to make the case, and get resources for a distinctively Welsh approach. But how has this changed, now more teams are out of the ‘head office’ now anyway, and the reality of diverging pandemic rules and health approaches has massively raised the profile and understanding of devolution.

In this interactive session we’ll explore together the challenges, opportunities and possible approaches, including short case studies from charity communicators of Wales-specific communications, campaigns and activities delivering results, and how they’ve achieved buy in and support from colleagues and sector peers. 

Speaker:

Matthew O’Grady, policy and influencing lead, Stroke Association


About the Wales Networking Group

The CharityComms Wales networking group brings together charity comms professionals based in Wales. Each event focuses on a different comms topic with guest presenters, group discussions and networking.

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

This group is led by Jess Day along with the Wales Network steering group:

  • Angharad Jones, Play Wales
  • Bran Devey, Ramblers Cymru
  • Emma Shepherd, Building Communities Trust
  • Liz Rawlins, Elhra

If you’re interested in speaking at an event or if there are any topics you’d love to discuss, please get in touch with Jess.

To be added to the Wales networking group mailing list please email events@charitycomms.org.uk.

You can also stay in touch with charity communicators in Wales through the Comms 3 Cymru Facebook group – message the admins (Jess and Bran) to request to join with a note of your role or connection with the sector.
