Giving London’s equality sector a stronger voice


Media Trust and Equality Diversity Forum (EDF), with support from City Bridge Trust, have launched Stronger Voices – a new communications training programme specifically designed to strengthen the voices of equality organisations across London.

Since the Brexit referendum and the rise of fake news, voices of charities, communities and the equality sector need to be heard more than ever. This is why they are giving 15 London-based equality organisations the opportunity to take advantage of a free a six-month programme of communications training.

By getting involved, organisations will have a change to develop vital communications skills so they can better represent their organisation in the media, advocate their positive work and achievements and increase understanding of the impact their work is having across London and the UK.

Organisations will benefit from:

  • An introduction to strategic communications session
  • Six training workshops for your staff and beneficiaries, covering a range of media skills and techniques
  • Networking opportunities with journalists, including a chance for you to pitch stories to them
  • A communications review and surgery session, undertaken with a dedicated team of media professionals
  • The development of a targeted communications action plan

It is also a fantastic opportunity to network with charities and organisations and learn from industry leading professionals.

Find out how Fardous Bahbouh and her charity Ahlan Wa Sahlan benefited from taking part in a similar Media Trust training programme last year.
