Manchester media and PR social enterprise Yellow Jigsaw has celebrated its fifth birthday.
Former MEN Media journalist Kirsty Day and charity project manager, Grace Dyke, started Yellow Jigsaw CIC in 2014 to specialise in communications services for the not-for-profit sector.
They have since seen year-on-year growth with their client base and team – now working alongside six associates – delivering award-winning communications strategies, community projects and campaigns for charities and social enterprises across the north west.
Clients include the University of Salford, Manchester Credit Union, Age UK Salford and Six Degrees to Tandem Theatre, Aspire and Warrington Housing Association.
Kirsty, media director of Yellow Jigsaw from Sale, said: “We are passionate about the work that we do and the sector that we specialise in and are delighted to have hit our fifth birthday.
“We are very grateful for the love and support shown from our clients and associates, who joined us for our celebrations.
“The not-for-profit sector is one that we know well through many years’ experience working at national charities.
“We know each organisation we work with has a unique set of challenges – from capacity to serving a diverse customer base – and we use this knowledge alongside our extensive knowledge of the media to bring them great PR and media results. Here’s to the next five years and working with more great causes.”
On top of their client base – Yellow Jigsaw – has secured funding from organisations including Ambition for Ageing and Trafford Housing Trust to run community projects to upskill members of the public in media and campaigning; from primary school children to the over 50s.
