About Teamwork Trust
Teamwork Trust is a Northamptonshire charity and Day Service provider for Adults with Learning Disabilities, Autism and or Mild Mental Health issues.
The organisation had won a pot of money and was entering an exciting period of change when it first approached Pilkington Communications back in 2015. Teamwork Trust was looking for a reputable local PR company which had experience in charity and not-for-profit communications. Pilkington Communications was the perfect choice and Teamwork Trust is still a much valued client of ours today.
Teamwork Trust had launched an ambitious new service-user-led strategy, where the people it supported became part of the charity’s decision-making process, engaged fully in the governance of the organisation.
Their strong vision – to ensure that everyone has access to the same chances, choices and opportunities – was already reflected in the delivery of programmes and the supportive, friendly environment in the centres, but it needed to come across in all their marketing and communications too, and that’s what they asked for help with.
They needed to clearly communicate to key stakeholders their social impact, which would in turn boost their profile and reputation locally, regionally and nationally.
Pilkington and Teamwork identified together that a complete overhaul of the messaging across multiple communications channels was needed, and this is where the work started. And what began as an ad hoc project turned into an ongoing and long-term investment in strategic PR that still continues today.
Pilkington Communications has led on a number of significant projects and campaigns over the years, as well as managing the charity’s ongoing PR activities. These have included:
The working relationship has evolved and the Pilkington Communications team now acts as highly valued strategic partner on a retained contract. We lead on funding bids, award submissions, campaign planning, internal and external communications.
