COVID-19 has highlighted the digital communications skills, resource and budget gaps across the charity sector, and accelerated innovations and different ways of delivering services and engaging audiences.

Findings from our recent COVID-19 Comms Support Survey in partnership with CharityComms found that 97% of respondents said they would benefit from access to volunteer communications support.

Media Trust has seen a 148% increase in media and communications professionals signing up to Media Trust’s Volunteer Platform, to share their skills with charities at this time. Volunteers are offering support in social media and digital marketing, communications strategy and planning and much more.

Charities of any size or location in the UK can utilise our Volunteer Platform to connect with professionals from across the media and creative industry, who want to share their skills and expertise with you. Sign up today and let our volunteers know how they can help.
