Project Communications

Influencing behaviour among those who matter most to your project

We believe it’s best to build with people, not just for them. So we start by listening. We engage communities, politicians and businesses to influence opinion, understand issues, build advocacy and mobilise support. 

We drive conversation and connect with stakeholders from project inception through to operation and beyond, ensuring their views shape our strategies as your project evolves.  

Understanding your audiences

We bring an in-depth understanding of your audiences’ views from working on hundreds of projects and utilising the latest data and area insight. We know when and how to influence and how to build a compelling story that matters to political audiences at a local, regional and national level and in a way that demonstrates support for wider policy ambitions.

Our bespoke data insight tool, Communify, enables us to build a deep understanding of an area so we can develop a programme of engagement that will achieve your objectives and resonate with target audiences.  

Defining a compelling brand and narrative

We create strategic messaging that aligns your vision with the political agenda and adds meaning for the community. It forms the basis of pre-planning discussions and consultation with those impacted by your project, helping you shape ideas collaboratively and influence support.  

Consent secured, we evolve the narrative using ongoing audience insight to keep communities engaged and maintain stakeholder advocacy throughout construction 

Public consultation

We’ve supported hundreds of projects through the planning process. Our ‘gold standard’ public consultation strategies are always compliant and proportionate to project needs. We design and deliver every element, from strategies and programmes, materials, events, data capture, analysis and reporting to the legislative requirements, including statements of community consultation, statutory notices and consultation reports. Our consultation programmes, including digital platforms, are designed to give every corner of the community a voice 

Political and community engagement

We deliver strategic, creative engagement strategies that change minds and influence behaviour. Our bespoke engagement programmes earn you trust, even in the most challenging political and social environments, to keep your vision alive, programme on track and reputation intact.  

While planning consent gives legal go-ahead, delivery is at risk without stakeholder acceptance. We believe in continuing proactive strategic communication and engagement activities throughout the whole project lifecycle to pre-empt and neutralise any contention, secure ongoing advocacy and protect your programme from disruption. 

Articulating project legacy

With long term investment decisions, creating a lasting legacy beyond the delivery of a project can help shape entire generations that live and work in an area. We work with clients at the earliest stage, showcasing social value credentials during the bid stage of a project.  

Through early engagement with stakeholders and communities, we enable clients to understand the tangible benefits a project can realise. We help take the public on the journey with you, generating social licence to deliver your project and strengthening your reputation.
