I just stumbled across a 6-month programme that the Media Trust is running, Stronger Voices.
Blurb from website:
Stronger Voices is a transformative, six-month strategic communications training programme specifically designed for UK equality organisations, grassroots community-centred movements, and user-led charities based in London. This programme aims to empower you, the experts in your field, with the skills and knowledge to amplify your voice, mobilise your audience, and influence meaningful change.
With the current economic and political context, it is crucial that the media and policymakers hear from the people whose lives, livelihoods and wellbeing are most affected. Given the rising levels of inequality and emerging potential political opportunity, this year’s Stronger Voices programme will prioritise organisations campaigning for systemic change and/or tackling structural inequality in their work for communities in London.
We are looking for 20 London-based equality organisations to take part in this free six-month strategic communications training programme. The programme runs from October 2023 – March 2024 and applications close on Sunday 10 September, at 11:59pm.
