Promoting and supporting voluntary activity across South Northamptonshire


28 February 2022

Calling all Northamptonshire social enterprises, charities and voluntary groups

Exciting plans are afoot to launch a new digital marketing and PR academy exclusively for our county’s voluntary sector. Details are still be worked on, but it is likely the academy will have a physical base in the county AND offer a mobile service – bringing training and support to you.

To proceed, the company beyond the Academy – Pilkington Communications – wants to hear from you. They are applying for a government grant and your feedback will help strengthen their evidence base.

So, please can you take a couple of minutes to complete this survey:

And do share with any other voluntary organisations in Northamptonshire. The survey will only be open until 12noon on March 1st.

Nationally, support with digital marketing (in terms of fundraising, recruitment, publicity and more) is the number one ask from charities and social enterprises – they want to upskill to help with everything from raising funds and increasing their donor pool, to attracting new trustees, recruiting new talent, raising their profile, launching new products and much more.

Thank you for all your help. We will keep you posted about this Academy, which – all being well – is likely to be launched as early as this April.

In the meantime if you have any questions do contact Jessica, who runs Pilkington Communications. She’d love to hear from you:
