Citizens Advice Salford has commissioned social media agency, Social Republic, to help drive volunteer registrations with demand for its services growing.
The agency will be responsible for creating innovative social campaigns across Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter. The goal being increasing volunteer applications, in an effort to help provide vital services.
Founded back in 1939, Citizens Advice provides free, confidential and impartial advice to the community as well as campaigning on the biggest issues affecting people’s lives.
Gareth Hughes, Senior Manager at Salford Citizens Advice commented:
“We’re looking forward to working with the Social Republic team to help improve social media activity and reach potential volunteers.
It’s imperative that we maintain a healthy number of volunteers to keep up with the current demand.
The work that they do helps us to assist more than 20,000 people each year. Without their passion and generosity, we wouldn’t be here today.”
CEO of Social Republic, Rob Illidge, added:
“As a purpose-led agency we are excited to develop a partnership with an organization that is close to our heart.
The main aim of our work will be to increase the number of volunteers. In turn this will help to provide vital services to the Salford community.
Campaigns will highlight the multitude of support services offered. Furthermore they will encourage the people of Salford, who are passionate about helping others, to apply.”
Social Republic is social media agency for non-profit organizations; working with the NHS, British Red Cross, Melanoma UK and Gina Bachauer International Piano Foundation.
