Have your say in the future of Spread the Word – Brand Consultation Focus Groups


As we approach our 30th anniversary, we are having active conversations about the next 30 years. We need to understand whether our current brand is robust enough to support these ambitions. If you are someone who knows our work well or is new to our work, we want to hear your views on how representative our brand is of your experience with Spread the Word and from your understanding of how we want to develop.

We are open to looking at everything – our mission, vision and values, our look and feel, and our name.

We would love you to be part of these discussions and to invite you to an online session or to an in-person focus group to hear your views.

We are running four sessions. Two for those of you who know our work well and two for people who are new to our work.
