I am passionate about combining my extensive experience in the voluntary sector with my editorial expertise to help non-profits achieve their goals.

Prior to becoming a full-time editorial professional, I worked in the third sector for seven years in policy, research and communications roles. I’m always delighted to apply this experience to my work with non-profits – from small local charities to international NGOs, including:

Here are some of the ways I can help:

  • Campaigns: Whether it’s a quick public-facing campaign or a long-term political relations campaign, you need your messaging to be engaging, audience-appropriate and effective. I can help by writing your campaign materials from scratch, helping you to develop existing materials or simply checking they’re free of any embarrassing errors before they’re released into the world.
  • Organisational reports: Wondering how you’re going to fit in writing your annual report alongside all your other vital work? Outcomes monitoring documentation getting you down? I can be an extra pair of safe hands so you can concentrate on the bigger picture.
  • Policy: Policy work for nonprofits is my main area of expertise. Whatever the format – from a one-page parliamentary briefing to a full-length report – I’ll make sure your policy messaging is succinct, persuasive and appropriate for a policymaking audience.
  • Regionalisation for the UK or Welsh contexts: Is your organisation working in the UK but based elsewhere? Or do you focus predominantly on Westminster but need your work to be relevant in Wales? I help international NGOs to make their materials UK-relevant, and UK organisations to adapt their materials to the devolved Welsh context.
  • Research: Have you conducted some research but just don’t have the time to write it up? Do your research findings need to be translated into audience-appropriate materials for policymakers or non-experts? I can make sure your research is written persuasively and communicates the right messages to those you want to influence.
  • Fundraising: Need a funding bid written by yesterday but just don’t know how you’re going to find the time? Want to make sure your bid meets all the funder’s criteria and is free of errors, repetition and jargon? I can produce it from scratch or polish your draft into a winning bid. I can also produce fundraising materials for your volunteers, helping you to bring in extra revenue for your vital work.
  • Press and publicity: Would a well-placed advertorial or feature article help your organisation to achieve its goals? Perhaps you need an extra, experienced pair of hands to help with producing press releases? Let me help you to raise awareness of your work in the press.
