What's keeping you from the tasks that only you can do? Perhaps we can help.

Our public affairs support is whatever you need it to be, when there aren’t enough hours in the week to get everything done.

We provide a full suite of research and support services to keep your advocacy work on track. From contact databases to bespoke briefings, our team of subject specialists can draft the resources you need to make an impact.

Examples of recent work include:

  • Political awareness training for a public sector organisation keen to understand power structures, scrutiny and the legislative process.
  • Mapping locations against their elected members and preparing bespoke briefings on related activity and opportunities to engage.
  • Researching stakeholders in Scotland for a UK brand ahead of a product launch and policy engagement programme.
  • To support a funding bid, we prepared a briefing on how an early-stage new technology could help deliver a just transition and contribute net zero targets.  We looked at policy commitments and pledges to show how this cross-cutting solution might fit within different departmental funding streams. 
  • Translations for clients who need Gaelic news items translated verbatim into English and support for clients with Welsh/English translations
  • For a workforce campaign, we looked back at the specific wordings of commitments given by government ministers over a three year period, to confirm the specific promises given and the timescales.
