Forster has been creating powerful social change campaigns, online and offline, since 1996. We specialise in research and insight, brand communications, digital and PR. Here, we introduce you to the values and ambitions that drive our work, the wide-ranging issue expertise that informs our work and the way we would hope to work with you.
To bring the range and depth of our expertise into focus, we capture it in four key areas:
Where do ‘young’ and ‘old’ begin and end? At Forster, we understand that the one thing all people have in common is life stages, the progression through age. We work closely with clients who need to meet the diverse needs and aspirations of older people or engage young people on issues.
We create and deliver common sense communications which meet the diverse needs and aspirations of older people. We help businesses, non-profit organisations and whole communities make changes that help young people build a more positive future.
Is it a basic human right to live a healthy life? At Forster, we act as if it is. We work with clients towards healthier lifestyles, better access to services, fewer health inequalities.We use our in-depth expertise, on issues from mental health to smoking and alcohol consumption, through to cancer screening and encouraging active lifestyles, to create convincing communications that stick in the mind – and stimulate lasting change.
Is contemporary living creating future problems? At Forster, we’re doing something about that. We’re working with innovators to promote sustainable business, protect the environment and tackle climate change. Sustainable transport and travel or sustainable farming; low carbon living or green technology; recycling and reusing or sharing and respecting?
We help you get your voice heard in the places that matter on the subjects that count – so that your consumers, supporters and shareholders know about it.
Does localism sound like a new idea? At Forster, we’ve been helping communities work better together for the last 14 years. We help clients highlight opportunities, remove barriers and increase access to rights, culture and care.
We help businesses connect with their community through effective CR programmes. We work with charities and the public sector to improve services and build community partnerships that include members of the public. We create campaign messages with an authentic voice.
