Organisational membership

From free special interest network groups to peer mentoring, we meet the needs of your whole team, whatever their level or experience.

We’re here to champion communications and with organisational membership you can add as many of your comms team as you need to your subscription so everyone can benefit!

Organisational membership is for charitable organisations and non-profits. If you’re a freelancer working in charity comms, or working solo / as part of a small comms team at a charity or non-profit, please take a look at individual membership. For agencies, freelancers and suppliers to the charity sector, we also offer a corporate partnership option.

It’s impossible to overstate the impact CharityComms has had on the sector, and specifically on the profile of comms within it. It has been an incredibly positive agent for change, a creative forum for ideas, a sounding board for shared problems and a catalyst for accelerating the development of comms skills and knowledge.

We love the free seminars, reduced price conferences and the mentoring programme. As a big charity with a large comms team, it’s a cost-effective way to supplement our training budget.
