Generating publicity

Now you’ve received one of our grants you need to start promoting it and also acknowledge you’ve received it from us. This is a condition of your grant.

Many groups have found that by promoting their grant in the local media they’ve raised public awareness of their work and how the local community benefits.  This can lead to additional fundraising opportunities, business links and people offering to help your group or project.

Our free media guide will give you some useful tips on how to promote your grant and your project.

Our Director of Community Programmes, Lucy Bardner is happy to offer you advice and guidance on generating publicity.

Any press releases you plan on issuing to the media that either refer to us or use our logo must also be approved by Lucy. Please email her on
