At CharityComms, we like to think we’re one big family. We love our members, those who have supported us, contributed their time, money and energy and everyone who has been part of our community.
This April, CharityComms turned 10. Since 2007, we’ve been flying the flag for comms in the third sector growing from 0 members to 4,000 individuals from over 500 charities. We've welcomed 16,751 of you to our events and matched 555 of you in mentoring partnerships.
Here are some of the reasons our members think of us like family.
A place to meet like-minded people
CharityComms has enabled me to meet like-minded people working in different organisations up and down the country. It’s great to be able to hear how things work in different teams and organisations, share ideas and best practice, and comfort each other over the challenges and frustrations we all share!
Helen Appleton, internal communications officer, St. John Ambulance
…support, solidarity, great events, celebration, chance to talk about challenges, an amazing team, and a place where I don’t feel alone!
Clare Skelton, marketing & communications manager, FoodCycle
Learning from others
Being a member of CharityComms gives us the opportunity to learn from others in the sector, provide the evidence we need to push for change, and to ensure that we’re continually improving our communications.
Sophie Appleby, communications manager, Youth Music
Continuing the celebrations
Keep an eye out for our communications benchmark, out soon, and our best charity communication campaign poll in July. We’ll also be hosting a special Inspiring Communicator Awards in November. Find out what we've got planned to celebrate our tenth anniversary.
