Which charities can apply?

Charities in Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex and Cambridgeshire are eligible to apply for support through the GiveBack scheme. Charities that have not been successful in the past are eligible for nomination.

How are charities selected?

The charities will be chosen through agreement of the CIPR East Anglia Committee.

The committee is focused on selecting a charity based on the difference that the committee feels it can make for that charity through pro bono support within the time frame of one year.

In order to do that, before the committee agrees on a charity partner for they year, a committee member will meet with each shortlisted charity to discuss its needs. A clear objective will be identified as part of this process.

Eligibility criteria:

  • Locally constituted registered charities that demonstrate benefits to the community
  • Charitable organisations that need professional support or help with PR or Marketing
  • Charitable organisations that cannot afford to pay for professional PR services

How do I nominate a charity for next year?

To nominate a charity, simply send an email to the CIPR East Anglia Charity Co-ordinator by Friday 26 October 2018 telling us the name of the charity, a short summary of what the charity does and why you feel the charity would benefit from the support of CIPR East Anglia.

Send your submission to Sally Pattinson.

Shortlisted charities will be contacted in November and the chosen charity in 2019 will be selected in December 2018.
