Groups tackling poverty and inequality in Southwark are being invited to apply for free help with web design, social media, making videos and marketing.
The project is part of London College of Communication’s Talent Works programme, which aims to support voluntary organisations with help from their creative students. They are particularly keen to hear from groups adversely affected by COVID-19.
“Talent Works has proven a popular and effective way of supporting local enterprises whilst giving students opportunities and experience to work on real-world projects,” said Gill Henderson, London College of Communication, UAL’s cultural and communities partnerships manager.
“We were delighted to be awarded funding from Trust for London to enable us to focus on groups actively addressing issues like poverty and inequality – which have been further exposed and exacerbated by the pandemic.
“Our students across design, media, and screen can provide fresh insight and innovative solutions so organisations can better communicate their mission, reach more people, and ultimately, have a greater impact on the communities they support.”
Talent Works has helped 67 charities and provided paid work for 113 students so far.
