Social media communications for Not-for-Profit organisations

 Look Inside

How will this guide help me and my organisation?

Our guide to social media communications has been developed to help marketers who are either setting strategy for social media activities or are involved “hands-on” in using social media in Not-for-Profit organisations.

This guide aims to give a clear structure to help you grow internal confidence and buy-in so that the benefits of social media can become visible and it becomes more accountable, serving the long-term strategic aims of charities.

While the main focus is on the charity sector, the guide will be useful for other ‘not-for-profit’ organisations including the arts, cultural, educational and government organisations.
