> Local Politicians
> Local Media - TV, Print, Radio
A logo to brand content related to a major campaign called - "Smart Solutions in Tough Times" The logo will be used across our family of websites and on printed materials.
About the campaign:
Like everyone else the voluntary and community sector (charities / NGO's) are facing massive cuts in public expenditure. We accept that cuts are inevitable but we want to make sure that cuts are done fairly and with due consideration of the outcomes. Our 1,000 member organisations provide a wide range of efficient and effective services that benefit society - we need to get the message across to government and others that the voluntary and community sector provides "Smart Solutions in Tough Times"
We are launching the campaign soon - local media, our members and our own communications channels will all feature the logo.
