York Against Cancer

Propelling York Against Cancer into the next decade with a new brand & communications strategy

The challenge

York Against Cancer, one of York’s most respected local charities, needed to stand out in a crowded market dominated by major national and local health charities. The charity, which was about to celebrate its 30th anniversary year, had grown organically over time and its communications were a little out of date.

Our solution? Launch a new brand, website & cost-effective communications strategy

We brought together all stakeholders from across the Charity including employees, board members, patients, fundraisers and volunteers. Together, we developed a new brand and communications strategy to reflect the charity’s core values, community spirit and to show how it makes a difference to local people affected by cancer.

Launching the new brand positioned ‘York Against Cancer’ as a professional and valuable local charity, just in time for its 30th anniversary year.

The new, user-friendly website encouraged online donations for the first time and we developed a plan for more regular and cost effective communications with supporters.

Our work was the springboard for the 30th anniversary fundraising campaign which resulted in £100K of additional donations during the year.

“Intandem Communications really got to the core of the Charity and the work we have done has gone far beyond a rebranding exercise, unravelling the last 30 years of ‘evolution’ and giving us a professional solid platform for the future as we continue to grow.”
