Whitehouse Communications has a wealth of experience in education and children’s services policy, having provided support to a range of organisations including education providers, Multi-Academy Trusts, leading providers of EdTech, and children’s charities. We have a particular expertise in working with membership organisations and appreciate the importance of keeping members informed and involved while ensuring work programmes progress.
Our team provides clients with the advice and guidance needed to achieve their core aims across schools’ policy, funding, procurement practices, market access, and Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). With current and former clients such as the Association of Educational Psychologists, The School and Nursery Milk Alliance (SNMA), Serenity Welfare, and the Dyslexia-SpLD Trust, we hold a strong expertise in policy issues related to education and children services, and have a proven track record for delivering change.
Our extensive experience in this area has led to key policy changes. For instance, we were recently nominated for “Best Public Affairs Campaign” at the ICCO Global Awards for our work on behalf of the Charlie Gard Foundation. Through tirelessly working with a range of parliamentarians, we successfully drummed up enough support for the Foundation’s amendment, “Dispute Resolution in Palliative Care”, to defeat the government whip.
The services we offer in the education and children’s services policy areas include policy audit, analysis and monitoring of the regulatory, policy and political landscape and its impact on businesses and stakeholders involved in education and children’s services; facilitation and maintenance of key, strategic political relationships to ensure your organisation is at the forefront of decision-making; strategic public relations campaigns to boost visibility, knowledge, and positive sentiment towards an organisation; and reputation management and crisis communications to identify reputational risks to a brand before they happen, and expertise in managing a crisis as it unfolds.
