Katy McGrory

Charity communications specialist

Welcome

With a proven abilty to manage and develop projects to a high degree, Katy has a keen ability to translate complicated information into readable copy. Experienced in copy writing and editing, developing design ideas and branding, and planning campaigns, Katy has an enthusiasm for working for the wide range of groups and people which make up the charity and voluntary sector and the issues which are important to them.

She won the Youth Justice Board’s Press and PR Award in 2001 and has a Certificate of Professional Practice in Campaigning from the University of Roehampton.

Having worked in the charity and voluntary sector for 20 years, both for national and local organisations, Katy brings a creative, down to earth and fun approach to communications.

“All voluntary organisations, charities and community groups need people to say good things about them, whether by word of mouth, lots of positive press coverage, a set of nice posters or publications or a mixture of all these things. But relatively few can afford the luxury of an in-house PR or communications specialist (let alone a team!). This is when a freelancer – someone like me – can really help”.

  2. Your website is really nice.
    Katy helped us with our annual report a couple of years ago. It was a lovely to hand it over to someone who knows what theyre doing, understands the sector and comes back with a great result.

  3. Hi Katy

    So pleased to see you branch out into the world of freelancing.

    Having worked with you since your arrival in our beautiful city, I can honestly say that I have always enjoyed your work ethics and your positive outlook on life in general allways welcoming with a lovely smile. As an LSP rep and Company Secretary/Trustee of the BMECP, I found your support and help unvaluable. So thanks.

    Bon Courage as they say in France

    Intuitive, insightful and a damn “good egg!” – have worked closely with you over a number of years and I’m still in awe of your ability to turn complicated “babble” (sometimes mine!) into accessible words and stories. In hope of working with you again soon – Keith x

  5. Thanks Keith. *blushes with pride*
