Charity communications guide written by journalists

A publication specifically for civil society organisation communicators has been produced by the European Journalism Centre. The authors of ‘Making the Media Work for You’ have kept the reality of limited communication resources in mind, creating content which ranges from hyper-local strategies like initiating and maintaining relationships with local journalists, to organising social media fuelled national campaigns.

The guide provides practical advice, strategies and real-world experiences from campaigners, journalists, non-government groups and governmental entities. Download (pdf, 2MB) via (Source: Euclid Network)
