The team are digital experts

The Catnip Comms Team came onboard to provide vital digital support at a critical time following the merge of two organisations to create Leukaemia UK. The team are digital experts, taking the brief and quickly getting to grips with our brand to deliver engaging and compelling digital comms. What I valued most, was that Catnip became members of our team, engaging day to day to fully understand our work and translate this for our audiences.

Leukaemia UK

Fay is extremely qualified and extremely bad ass.

She asks smart questions and produces social media strategies, products, and content that works. Her approach is always thoughtful, timely, and driven by her social insights and experience across integrated communications. She’s also incredibly fun to work with.

I won’t hesitate to call on Catnip Comms for future community management resource

The Catnip Comms folks joined my team to help with online community management during a restructure and challenging crisis comms situation. We’re a large and complex organisation but they took it in their stride and were responding to our supporters and the public on social media knowledgably and on-brand within no time at all. They genuinely came to feel like members of our team and it’s credit to them that colleagues from other parts of the organisation couldn’t tell they were freelancers. I won’t hesitate to call on Catnip Comms for future community management resource – they’re professional, a pleasure to work with, and a real safe pair of hands.

Quick to respond to the brief and really took the time to understand

Catnip Comms came onboard to help support in the strategy, content planning and implementation of a new social channel to support one of our high profile campaigns with a key corporate partner. Fay and her team were quick to respond to the brief and really took the time to understand the project and its aims. They delivered a huge amount of high quality work in a short time frame. Their attention to detail and understanding of the digital platform was evident; and they were also fantastic to work with – amenable, flexible, and passionate about delivering a high quality product to their client.

Excellent skills in communicating complex issues

We are thrilled to be working with Catnip Comms to drive forward our campaigning via their expert digital communications strategy and implementation, alongside their excellent skills in communicating complex issues with nuance and care.

My ultimate source for all things social

Catnip Comms has been my ultimate source for all things social and digital for years now. I joke that Fay is my social guru, but it’s true. There’s no company I trust more with this vital component of our work—whether it’s for planning impactful campaigns, social crisis management, or advice on communication strategy. Catnip Comms has it covered!

Catnip stepped in to help us plan and implement our social media response to a new fundraising initiative. They were professional, knowledgeable, supportive, and most importantly, enabled us to deliver positive results.

It was fantastic to have training that was completely tailored

From the beginning Catnip has been super helpful! It was fantastic to have training that was completely tailored to what I needed and what the charity needed. I really enjoyed my digital marketing workshop with the team, they have so much knowledge and I learnt loads in a few hours. I now feel much more confident to go away and manage our digital marketing campaigns and social media accounts.
