We support anyone working in PR and communications in the not-for-profit sector – from charities and social enterprises to housing associations and local government. We provide opportunities for members to develop their skills, build their network and broaden their knowledge base within the sector.

If you are a CIPR member and would like to join the Not-For-Profit group, you can update your preferences via MyCIPR. You don’t have to be a member to join us at one of our events (see below), everyone is welcome.

What we do

We are planning a series of events including panel discussions with journalists, skills sharing and networking evenings. We also intend to partner with regional groups to offer events that are accessible to our many members who work outside London. If you would like to help us organise events, please contact us on the email address above – we’re keen to welcome volunteers to the committee.

We publish a regular newsletter to keep you up-to-date on developments in the sector. We’re also active on Twitter and run a LinkedIn Group for not-for-profit PRs and communicators.
