Capacity Building and Support Available from Goodwork

John Lyon’s Charity has been working with PR and Communications Agency, Goodwork since 2018.

Goodwork is the first social enterprise PR and Communications agency in the UK. It was set up with a simple aim: to use their communication skills to celebrate good work in the world. Goodwork’s team consist of experienced media professionals and journalists who come from a News background. As a social enterprise, their profits are reinvested in the charities and organisations they support. They work with large and small charities, non-governmental organisations and companies to improve their communications.

An increasingly significant part of the Charity’s work is delivered under our Capacity Building Fund. This Fund gives organisations access to the tools, knowledge and expertise with which to become fitter and more robust. John Lyon’s Charity is delighted to announce a new strand to the Capacity Building Fund by providing communications support delivered by Goodwork to its groups across the Beneficial Area. The Charity will provide funding to help charitable organisations learn and grow from a PR and Communications perspective.

If you need help with writing, interviewing, shooting, editing, pitching your stories to the media, as well as training in how to communicate with the media in promotional, or crisis situations, Goodwork can offer you support. They can also give guidance on how best to use social media to promote your achievements.
