We want to help fight Covid-19 but we can’t re-tool and make ventilators or supply doctors or nurses. However, we do know communications. We want to put our firm’s unique position and capability at the disposal of organisations that urgently need help with their communications and lobbying.
Currently, we have not had any fall off in our client work (thank you clients) but the EA team is prepared to work late and at weekends to make this work.
What we are doing:
We will connect, free of charge, expert communicators (volunteering their services) with critical organisations who either cannot afford their help or are simply too snowed under fighting Covid-19.
Initially, we are planning to offer this service to charities involved in health, social care and housing. These may need extra help with employee communications, crisis communications, or lobbying local and national government.
You might be a retired or part-time strategic Communications Director with crisis and/or employee communications expertise which would benefit our health service. You might be a PR consultant who would be happy to volunteer your time to support with media handling at this unprecedented time. If you have relevant expertise and would like to offer your time then please contact us….
Need help with your communications?
Email us at needhelpC19@ellwoodatfield.com explaining what sort of communications help you need.
Willing to volunteer?
Email us at canhelpC19@ellwoodatfield.com explaining what expertise you have, how many hours and what time of day you are available to offer your help free of charge.
We will monitor responses regularly over the coming days/weeks and will endeavor to provide a response to your enquiry within 2-3 working days. By being in touch with us on this volunteering initiative, we will assume that you are happy for us to send you updates about C19 Comms Volunteers.
We apologise again for sending out an unsolicited email but I hope you will forgive us, these are unprecedented times. We want to do our bit to help out and we have no idea how big the need is, so we are testing the water.
For existing EA clients with budgets to hire communications professionals, we’d like to reiterate that this is an offering developed to help our over-stretched public services and charitable organisations who are particularly struggling at the current time.
