Clients

I’ve been lucky to work with some amazing organisations since I launched Colvine Communications – learn about a selection of them here.

Semble

Semble brings community groups together with businesses and volunteers to make change happen. I’ve been so proud to work with them in the capacity of Global Communications Manager since 2016 for their Outdoor Classroom Day campaign. I’m also delighted to support their comms activities for their Backyard Nature campaign. Find out more about Semble

CanDo

CanDo pioneers people-to-people aid to invest in and resource local humanitarians to save more lives in war-devastated areas. I worked with CanDo for five months as Creative Comms Lead to fill a resource gap, managing all of their external comms including their wonderful blog. Find out more about CanDo

Friends of the Elderly

Friends of the Elderly runs a portfolio of care homes across the country. Through their charitable work, they provide support for older people affected by loneliness and grants for those living on a low income. I headed up the Communications Team at Friends of the Elderly from 2014-2016. I have since continued to work with them on projects including the production of their annual review.

Outdoor Play and Learning (OPAL) CIC

The OPAL Primary Programme is what OPAL is all about. It is a mentor supported school improvement programme. It addresses all of the areas schools must plan for if they want to sustainably improve the quality of play. I’ve been supporting OPAL with their comms since 2018, focussing on social media and PR.

Envision develops young people’s employability by empowering them to tackle real-life social problems. I worked with Envision on their Comunity Apprentice programme, sharing my top tips for campaigning at their fresher-style fair. Find out more about Envision

Playful Planet CIC

Playful Planet is a community interest company dedicated to advocacy for children’s rights in the built environment: in particular, their right to play, to be mobile, to access space and to fully participate in the life and culture of their communities. I led the comms strategy for Playful Planet’s inaugural international conference on children’s rights in the built environment. Find out more about Playful Planet

Outdoor People 

Outdoor People is a social enterprise, with a mission to make the outdoors easy for everyone, and in particular for families, kids and communities. They sell great outdoors kit in their shop, run projects for local residents, and offer consultancy to organisations that share their mission. I worked with Outdoor People on their film screening of Project Wild Thing. Find out more about Outdoor People

DaCapo Music Foundation

DaCapo believes that every person should have the opportunity to discover the joy in making music. They are a registered charity with an award-winning music programme which they deliver in schools, as teacher training, and as music lessons for children and adults at their Saturday Music Centre in North London. DaCapo were the winners of my 2019 Giving Tuesday competition which offered non-profits a day of comms free of charge. Find out more about the DaCapo Music Foundation
