Getting coverage in local and regional media is a great way to raise your profile in your community. It can also encourage local people to get involved in your work, for example: by making a donation, attending an event or using your services.

Working with your local and regional media is a relatively cheap and easy way to get your message out to large numbers of people in your area. Local and regional media will cover local issues in greater depth than the national media and can champion local causes.
