Marketing & Social Media Support

Charities rely on marketing to find more support to their causes as well as sharing their inspiring work. However, the majority of small local charities lack knowledge about the basic principles to set up the right strategy that works for them. When having a successful marketing and social media plan, the benefits last for a long time.

Please have a look at the requested skills and submit your details. All of the skilled support requests are short-term opportunities. Depending on your time and skills you are welcome to do advisory sessions spread out over a few weeks.
