Freelancers for charities

Chris G

I’m an experienced copywriter and worked for many years in the public/third sectors. I can provide you with the expertly written content (web and print) you need to engage with your audience, describing how your work improves lives and benefits the community. Getting the right messages to the right people. Curiosity is the gateway to creativity. And I enjoy the challenge of getting under the skin of an organisation, understanding its marketing needs and bringing its story to life. I also have extensive experience of bid writing, having successfully run grant schemes and written applications. Read more

This was quite a tricky task to distill down a lot of content into a much shorter member agreement and member handbook. Chris did a great job revising and copyediting the material. Delighted to complete this task. Excellent work as always Chris. Thank you!

An absolute pleasure working with Chris on a grant application. He made the process as easy as it can be as he is very experienced and highly skilled in the art of distilling important information into an engaging and compelling story. He was also able to give very useful advice on choosing the best grant to apply for. He is very responsive and his approach is friendly and relaxed which all helps. I highly recommend Chris and look forward to working with him again - great that he has several very useful other strings to his bow!

This has been a very happy and productive experience for us at Shrewsbury House Youth Club. Chris has completed a very full Impact Report covering our past 10 years, a summary version of that report as well as a short review and recommendations for our website. He has been helpful and forgiving of the gaps we have had and diligent in researching our material. His writing has been clear, concise and strong. We are now equipped with an invaluable document which can help us develop strong PR materials within our fundraising strategy. Chris has been efficient, delightful and very helpful. We are very grateful.
