I was impressed with your ability to quickly understand our requirements, absorb the information provided, and translate all that into workable campaigns that went on to meet all our objectives. The Traditional Cumberland Sausage Day was inspirational. Leo Kolassa, Made in Cumbria

Environment & Nuclear

Osprey Communications has a strong track record of delivering effective communications and integrated PR campaigns for complex environmental projects.

Flood Risk Communications project

We worked with 3KQ, a leading facilitation and stakeholder engagement company, on a national multi-agency flood risk dialogue project led by the Environment Agency and Sciencewise, to look at improving flood risk communications. This included writing and creating a website for the project, and making a film giving a flavour of its outcomes.

Forestry Commission

Our assignments over 6 years with the Forestry Commission in the North West and West Midlands helped promote the forests as places for people to visit and participate in healthy activities, as well as informing the public about work to improve the environment and increase biodiversity.

This included a number of high profile launches, such as the introduction of Red Kites in the Lake District, Whinlatter Forest becoming a flagship red squirrel reserve and the development of the sculpture trail at Grizedale Forest.

We secured coverage on the BBC's Countryfile programme, Radio 4, the BBC's Heaven and Earth Show, as well as many items on regional TV news programmes and in local and national papers including The Daily Telegraph and The Observer.

Nuclear industry partnership work

We can help you with high level public engagement campaigns.  An example is our lead communications role for the West Cumbria Managing Radioactive Waste Safely (MRWS) Partnership.

This included a series of roadshow events, design and production of newsletters, press releases, advertising, website development and a live webinar in the lead up to the decision about whether or not to take part in the next stage of the Government’s search for somewhere to locate a repository for the UK’s higher activity radioactive waste.

We produced a summary document and film as part of the final report on the work of the West Cumbria MRWS Partnership, which won a Gold Award from the Chartered Institute of Public Relations in the North West.

Osprey Communications also managed the PR for the launch of the GoLakes Travel project, which was established to encourage sustainable travel in the Lake District.  We secured over 100 separate pieces of broadcast and print media coverage about the initiative, as well as creating popular Twitter and Facebook accounts for GoLakes Travel.
