Third sector

Our team at Sorted Communications has been providing the third sector with affordable and tailored communications support for over a decade. We understand the challenge of doing more with less, especially when your budget mainly relies on fundraising and grants.

"It’s been SO helpful that Sorted Communications have been so responsive and able to take things on at short notice. So often you contact external agencies for support, and they say they need several weeks’ notice, which often just isn’t the nature of comms, no matter how hard we try to plan in advance!"

The Nottingham Hospitals Charity‘s communications team asked for our help with three projects to showcase the charity’s impact. First, we worked on an updated research report that highlighted the impact of the many research projects the charity had funded. This involved summarising grant applications and reports and working with various people, including the charity’s CEO and grants manager, to gather information. We also provided advice on how to best structure all this important information.

We also helped the charity create new case studies to promote their work and encourage donations. They were setting up a dedicated section on their website, and asked us to write two articles of different lengths to see how they would fit together. These articles were based on the original grant applications and focused on explaining the projects in simple terms and emphasising how they helped patients. Lastly, we used our expert eye to proofread their 37-page annual report.

Special offer for small businesses and charities

We charge a simple hourly rate, regardless of the type of work we do; just send us tasks as and when you have anything comms-related that needs doing and we’ll get it sorted.

For small businesses and charities we offer: 20 hours of support, valid for 6 months, for just £1,500 +VAT.

We also have other standard packages available.

We’re experts at creating engaging and easy-to-understand communications that help you make a big impact. Our services cover a wide range of tasks, including writing, editing and proofreading materials like case studies, articles, website content, annual reports, brochures, guides and presentations. You can see the full list of what we offer in our services.

Frequently asked questions

Most of our day-to-day work lies somewhere on the spectrum of proofreading, editing and writing. We can also provide design and organise print if needed. We write a lot of case studies, blog posts, articles and website copy, and produce annual reports, brochures, guides and sometimes PowerPoint presentations. 

We can also help with non-writing tasks such as researching contact details or media lists, updating spreadsheets, cross-referencing information, organising photoshoots, sourcing translations – and some of the random queries that end up with comms because they don’t fit anywhere else! 

We don’t offer a reactive service (media enquiries/crisis comms) but apart from that, if it’s comms and it can be done remotely, we can probably help.

If you have a task that’s not listed here, drop a line to and we’ll let you know whether we can help.

Yes! We know what we’re good at and we stick to that. Things we don’t do include:

Medical writing: While we are comfortable working with medical terminology, we are not medical writers.

Technical analysis: We often work on technical documents to make sure the copy flows and the content is accurate and well presented, but we can’t crunch the data and do statistical analysis.

Strategic planning: While we know what a comms strategy looks like, strategic planning and campaign development are not our forte; we work best as a delivery team.

Reactive work: We don’t have the connections and insider knowledge that you do, so we leave the firefighting to you. We don’t provide media handling, crisis comms or other kinds of reactive or ‘on-call’ services.

Creative-led projects: Our design team are fantastic at adding visual pizzazz to our copy in all kinds of formats and they do a great job with annual reports, leaflets, brochures, social media graphics and the like, but if you need a full rebrand or a creative campaign, we’re not the best fit.

Our real strength is proactive ‘calm comms’ – the things that so often get pushed aside when you’re busy – blog posts, case studies, annual reports, newsletters, leaflets, presentations, posters, website copy… we’re a safe pair of hands that you can rely on to just get those things done.

Yes, absolutely.

We have some case studies on our website and there are testimonials at the bottom of most of our website pages.

If we send you a proposal for work, we will include testimonials and examples of relevant previous work within the proposal.

If you would like to see anything else, just drop us an email and we’ll be happy to send you some relevant examples.
