Barking & Dagenham Giving

Barking & Dagenham Giving is the first 100% community-led investment fund, aimed at improving one of the most diverse boroughs in England. It was set up in 2020 to give local people more opportunities to participate in local decision-making.

I worked with Louise Kavanagh, the communications lead for Barking & Dagenham Giving, and their Chief Executive to create a succinct narrative to help explain who they are, what they do, and why the community and funders should support them. This included a strapline, short description to introduce BD Giving, a longer origin story, key messages for community members and key messages for investors.

Many thanks for sharing this final version of the narrative. I think it’s going to be really useful and it’s been a pleasure to work with you on this.
