Together we are supporting, connecting, training and mentoring thousands of incredible organisations and inspiring individuals every year.

Charities, like all organisations, need skills, knowledge and creativity in order to communicate effectively with beneficiaries, funders and the public. However, many charities struggle with communications.

Research continues to highlight that around half of all small charities have a major skills gap in key areas of digital, social media and communications strategy.

This is where Media Trust comes in. We help charities focus on strategic and effective communications with their increasingly limited resources. But we can’t do this alone.
