Communications and advocacy are crucial to the life of a charity. Charities need to communicate to attract funding, increase participation and/or raise awareness of their organisation. The challenge is that many charities either don’t know how to or don’t have time to do it.
The Federation provides a wide range of support for sports associations to help communication to a range of audiences. Our staff will work with volunteers to inform and educate them on how to make the most of their communications. These can include development of their website, managing social media or reaching out to stakeholders.
We also dedicate specific time to advocating on behalf of the sports associations, raising awareness of RAF sport and sporting activity within the service. By reaching out to potential funders and other interested parties, the RAF Sports Federation help to keep the profile of the associations high and raise awareness of their impact.
