What our members say

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.

deputy director of marketing and communications,
Teenage Cancer Trust

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.

Carolan Davidge
director of marketing and engagement,
British Heart Foundation

Through CharityComms we meet fellow professionals, 
build relationships and learn from the creativity and expertise of others. We contribute to the thinking of colleagues and are rewarded with a more informed, rounded and motivated marketing and communications team. Times are hard 
and we struggle with cost efficiencies. This is one area of expenditure we will maintain. We see membership as an investment in our future.
