Jolly Good Communications is a social enterprise specialising in providing a full range of communications, public relations and related services for charities, social enterprises and other not-for-profits.
We were created to help small charities get their message heard – and not be held back by modest budgets. We come from charity backgrounds, which is why we don’t have flash offices, a massive advertising budget, company cars or big admin bills. We know every penny counts so we keep our costs low and pass those savings on to our clients, providing our services to third sector organisations for as little as possible and helping to train staff and volunteers to create sustainable change.
As we have grown we have also begun to work with start-up and small-to-medium businesses. Crucially, any profits from our commercial work are reinvested to subsidise support for small charities, enabling us to work for free wherever possible. We feel it is also our duty to encourage all of our commercial clients to operate in a socially, environmentally and ethically conscious way and introduce charitable initiatives into their working culture whenever possible.
Over the past four years, we are proud to have worked with over 60 organisations, of which more than 50% are charitable causes, from micro charities with incomes below £10,000 to household names like The Gurkha Welfare Trust. Our work has been featured in both national and sector-leading publications, as well as numerous interviews on TV and radio. Our coverage has generated over 2 billion opportunities to see, achieved over 6 million views and 70,000 social media shares (and counting).
As we’ve become more established, we’ve never lost touch with our founding principle – that every good cause deserves a voice, no matter their size. For this reason, supporting UK Charity Week and helping to champion the incredible work of charities of all sizes is a no-brainer for us. We’re proud to be banging the drum on behalf of all the amazing organisations who continue to tackle vital issues in our society and reach marginalised communities throughout the UK.
