The Marketors' Outreach programme has been asked to deliver an Outreach marketing support project for Clinks, an organisation that supports, promotes and represents the voluntary sector working with people in the criminal justice system and their families. Clink’s vision is of a vibrant, independent and resilient voluntary sector that enables people to transform their lives.
Thousands of voluntary organisations support people in the criminal justice system. They provide vital support to people serving their sentence in prison, in the community and people returning to the community after prison.
Clinks has successfully developed relationships with, and knowledge of, the voluntary sector and its stakeholders in the criminal justice system. Clinks has developed an effective model of local support and engagement through the Clinks area development team. The intelligence gathered by the team is critical to understanding the impact of national and local policy on the voluntary sector. It ensures Clinks’ national responses to government policy are representative of local experience.
It is well documented that women in the criminal justice system have different and more severe needs than men. Women are in the minority in the criminal justice system, approximately 5% of the prison population and 15% of those serving a community sentence. Women are often neglected in a system designed for the majority.
The Outreach marketing support project for Clinks is being managed by Marketor Sunila Lobo.
The Worshipful Company of Marketors’ Outreach Programme matches “good cause” organisations needing pro bono marketing support with one or more appropriate members of the Marketors, from Freemen to Past Masters. Outreach’s professional management approach helps document, define and time limit the marketing support, delivers our members’ marketing expertise and helps the “good cause” organisation to make their own improvements.
Many members of the Marketors based across the UK and elsewhere want to donate some personal time to help deliver some charitable marketing back into society. Outreach enables that activity. If you would like to help a good cause, regardless of where it is in the UK or overseas, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
