How a volunteer can help

In an increasingly competitive environment, it is essential that you are equipped with the skills and resources to effectively communicate with funders, beneficiaries and the public. Charities and community groups, like all organisations, need marketing and communications support. However, when budgets are stretched and resources are limited it can be challenge. This is where skilled volunteers can provide vital support.

Unrivalled access to the finest media talent

At Media Trust, we will connect you with experts from across the media and communications industry. With unrivalled access to volunteers from our partners, including Google, Facebook, BBC, Sky, The Guardian, WPP and Trinity Mirror, you can expect outstanding support from experts in the field of digital, marketing, PR and content creation.

Each year, our skilled volunteers provide free support and advice to thousands of charities across the UK. They share expert knowledge, expertise and time, helping charities to develop their skills, create compelling content and better understand how to gain publicity for causes, communities and beneficiaries.

In my eyes, Media Trust has given the media an integrity that I didn’t know it had.
