Promoting your project
Many community-led organisations find the most challenging part of their project is encouraging people to get involved with their project.
We provide training and support to help you promote your project and meet branding and promotional requirements.
Workshops to help you to develop a more effective plan to promote your project and improve engagement have taken place in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness and Stirling. You can view resources from the workshop below.
Branding and promotional requirements
We have produced summary guides and downloadable logos, templates, press releases and presentations to help your project meet branding and promotional requirements. Please refer to these guides before producing online or printed material.
Promoting your news
We're keen to promote your news through our website news section, newsletter and by social media. Please do get in touch with our Marketing Officer, Tim Mullens if you wish to share your news. Please contact Tim on his direct line (01786 468245) or by email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Tim can also provide projects with one-to-one support, signpost to resources for events and provide feedback on press releases.
