A message from Ged and Becky, Magpie Co-founders

We know how incredibly hard you – our partners and communities – are working over this challenging period and we would like to offer a big thank you. We understand that the landscape you work within has dramatically changed and that you are having to make difficult decisions on a daily basis.

What hasn’t changed is our shared commitment to making a difference to people’s lives. Now more than ever we are working collectively to continue to deliver our mission for healthier and happier communities.

We are here for you

There is a lot to digest and react to. How can we help you? Do you need someone to listen and help you navigate through the communication challenges? Do you want to find out how we are adapting campaigns and share some of our latest thinking? We are here to support you however we can. Please get in touch with either of us by email or on 0113 318 3051.

Campaigns that are more relevant today than ever

We are helping clients to find new ways to deliver campaigns within these unsettling and challenging times. We have adapted quickly and increased our use of online tools for gathering insight and working collaboratively (wakelet is helping us organise content from across the web and we’ve been giving klaxoon a go to share ideas and capture live feedback).

Using our expertise in community engagement and behaviour change, we are reshaping existing campaign strategies with sensitivity to help our clients continue to deliver their objectives.

We continue to tackle social isolation as we all follow the guidance to stay at home and campaigns such as Looking out for our neighbours and Winter Friends have shown how communities can pull together. Keeping children and families healthy and active as their world moves indoors brings new challenges for the JU:MP movement, but also new possibilities through digital engagement and taking the campaign into people’s homes.

Never has it been more important for us to thank those that care for us over this period and The Big Thank You campaign continues to celebrate all the wonderful things people, groups and organisations are doing for each other.

A thanks to our team

We are incredibly proud of our team who are juggling responsibilities and working around the clock (safely from home). We’re all sharing more ideas than ever, continuing to be involved in community networks, and working together to overcome challenges and seek new opportunities for all our campaigns to thrive. You can contact all the team as you would usually and our office number (0113 318 3051) and opening hours remain the same.

Please get in touch, we are here for you.
Take care and stay safe.
