PR platform Newspage is offering its Premium subscription for free to all UK charities until inflation is back at the Bank of England’s 2% target, to help them through the cost of living crisis.
Newspage, which launched in early 2021, gives charities the chance to be featured in the local, trade, national and international media for free.
Charities can create their own publicly visible and fully branded media centre. They then receive ‘NewsAlerts’ ‘in app’ to breaking or upcoming news stories that they could contribute to and are also able to add news stories of their own. The Newspage editorial team will edit and promote stories it believes will be of interest to the media for free.
Premium subscriptions are also on offer and usually cost £19.99 a month, including VAT. For this, users also receive ‘News Scores’ for the stories they upload, unlimited responses to News Alerts (media requests) and edits of all responses to News Alerts by a journalist.
To take advantage of the offer, charities need to create a free Newspage, and will then be upgraded to Premium by the Newspage team.
Dominic Hiatt, founder, Newspage, said:
“It’s been a brutal two years for UK charities with demand for their services soaring during the pandemic while donations have gone off a cliff. And now, with the cost of living crisis, it’s getting worse, as there is no Government support and cash-strapped consumers are finding it hard to donate. With this in mind, we’ve made the decision to offer our Premium subscription for free. Hopefully, this will ensure they stay front of mind and drive donations. Once inflation is back to 2%, we’ll offer charities a discounted rate.”
