The award-winning agency is inviting applications from third sector organisations interested in political communications consulting and support.
Whitehouse Communications is an issues-led communications agency with decades of experience in public affairs, PR and media relations. It supports long-term business and policy objectives and runs high-profile campaigns for clients in the private, public and charitable sectors that influence public opinion, policy, legislation and regulations, and builds support among key opinion formers and decision makers in Westminster, Brussels and beyond.
As part of its longstanding commitment to delivering positive and lasting change, Whitehouse Communications has relaunched its pro bono scheme in 2023. The programme offers organisations aiming to make a real impact in our communities the opportunity to contribute to the development of political policy and influence the national conversation.
The successful organisation will benefit from three months of support from the consultancy, helping them to push forward their policy objectives via a fixed-term project that can include any of: a parliamentary reception; a series of one-on-one meetings and a roundtable/panel event (Westminster/Brussels/devolved nations); media training and identifying speaking opportunities; a public awareness campaign; or a policy audit report.
Candidate organisations will be considered on the following criteria:
- Dynamism of the organisation, its application and general approach
- Desire for achieving change in public policy and a reasonable understanding of this environment
- Clarity and focus of the organisations’ aims and objectives for a public affairs campaign
- Willingness and ability of the organisation to invest time and own resources to a public affairs campaign
- Current level of statutory funding
- The degree to which the work of the organisation reflects the ideals and values of our company and our team
Organisations interested in applying for the pro bono scheme should complete the application form by no later than 6th October.
Shortlisted applicants will be expected to meet with members of the Whitehouse team prior to a final decision being made.
Chris Whitehouse, Chair and Managing Director of Whitehouse Communications, said:
“At Whitehouse, we stand for making a difference. In our 25 years as a force for positive change, we’re proud to have worked with charitable organisations across a range of sectors to deliver transformative and lasting impact in our communities.
“Our 2023 pro bono scheme reflects our ongoing commitment to championing good causes, and we look forward to building upon that work with organisations dedicated to making a difference in these challenging times.”
