FREE Webinar: An introduction to LinkedIn for the charity sector

Dates Available: 21 May 2020 


The charity sector is currently experiencing some of its greatest challenges in modern memory. However, adversity can also be the catalyst for change and a chance to do things differently.

Most of us know how to use Facebook, Twitter and Instagram as we generally use it in our personal life, but the one platform that contains the greatest number of high net individuals is on LinkedIn.

Marketing Services

Logo Design

Are your logo’s worn out and outdated?  Does your logo need a fresh new look?   Support Staffordshire can work with you to create custom logos with supporting brand guidelines.  If you have an old logo that’s blurred and you don’t have the original files, we may also be able to repair them and provide you with a new set of file types which can be used for both web and large scale print. Copyright Transfer:  Support Staffordshire will always transfer the rights of ownership of the final logo design to the receiving organisation.
