At Gatekeeper Communications, we want to make a difference in the places where we live and work. As an Ipswich-based PR and copywriting agency, we get to work closely with many different companies in a wide range of industries.
But we want to be able to use our skills and expertise to help those organisations who might need an extra pair of hands to tell their stories.
This year, we’ve been volunteering for Ormiston Families, an incredible charity that makes a huge difference in the lives of vulnerable children in the East of England. By offering pro-bono charity PR support, we’re helping to raise awareness and drive interest in the work that they do.
Ormiston Families helps kids and teens with their mental health and works with families who have been affected by offending. Thanks to their tireless efforts, in 2022/23 approximately 4,800 families and nearly 60,000 prison visitors benefitted from their services.
Over the last six months, we’ve been working closely with the team to provide voluntary PR support, helping to raise awareness of the wide range of activities and fundraising events undertaken by the team. We’re proud to help spread the word about the great work that Ormiston does all over the region.
This is a chance for us to show how much we care about a great cause. We’re grateful to live and work in a vibrant community, and we think that every child should have the same chances.
By providing charitable PR support to Ormiston, we can help them get the word out about who they are and tell their stories, which should be told.
The goal of the content marketing help isn’t necessarily to get more donations, though that would be great. Instead, it’s to make more people aware of how valuable they are. Raising awareness of the work that a charity does can be as simple as telling other people to sign up to volunteer or following the charity on social media.
Every small action matters.
Even if people just read this article, click through to the Ormiston Families website, and read about what they do, they will know more about the charity.
We’re proud to be able to help a charity that deserves it, and we’re looking forward to keeping up the relationship through the end of 2023!
Andrew Fitchett, Ormiston Families head of communications and engagement, said: “Working with Amy has been fantastic. She has brought professionalism, ideas, contacts and passion which have made a big difference.
“As a charity, we rely on volunteer support and having the amazing help of people like Amy can’t be underestimated. We can’t thank her enough.”
