As a Community Interest Company all our profits go back to help communities.
We have different packages that can be adapted to each individual campaign.
We charge per project based on your needs, but our team is with you on this journey and will often put more work in than we bill for! As a general guide we work by billing an hourly rate of £40 at the start of the project, and there is an option to have a member of our team on retainer for things like Social Media Management.
From time to time we need to buy in some services, so if you need a website then we have people we can “bring in” to do that for you. We will charge an additional fee of 10% which goes back into our fund to help community groups who can’t afford to fund a campaign.
As a community interest company we have to make sure that our profits are going back into the community and helping grassroots groups is one of the ways we do this. Profits are invested in our “social purpose fund” through which we then deliver on our social purpose. You can check out which projects have benefited on our website, and we will publish an annual report to highlight what we have done to give back to the community.
