Everybody has a voice and everybody has something to say - but how many people know they have something worth saying?
People's Voice Media works with communities, organisations and public bodies to use social media as a tool for greater voice and engagement.
What do we mean by social media? It is a set of tools that allows individuals and groups to become content producers rather than content consumers. It is a move away from the old “one to one” communication model to one where people create content that everyone is able to access. Because of this, social media is the ideal way for groups and individuals to have a voice.
Working with communities
Our work with people gives them the skills and confidence to be able to use technology in order to tell their own stories to challenge perceptions and describe their own realities. It also brings them into the wider network of community reporters across the UK and Europe.
Working with organisations
Our work with organisations helps them to use these tools as a way to have a meaningful dialogue, consult on ideas and co-produce services.
These techniques have been helping to create stronger communities for over 15 years and in that time we have worked with organisations such as housing associations, mental health boards, schools, religious groups, youth organisations, disability groups and police authorities.
