Communications and media
Our Communications Team provides specialist support to the Trust, media and other partners with their work.
We help with all requests for filming, interviews and statements from the media and other stakeholders.
We also manage the Trust’s internal and external channels and provide appropriate advertising opportunities for third parties.
Our in-house design and photography service does high quality work for external organisations and companies at competitive rates. You can find out more here.
During office hours (Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm) all media enquiries should be directed to the relevant communications colleague.
