Derbyshire based social enterprise, Outreach Solutions, celebrates 10 years of delivering information campaigns of social value across the UK.

Their Tackling Fraud Together 2020 programme is the latest in a long line of information campaigns they have managed which reach into the heart of communities, making individuals more empowered and knowledgeable about issues that are important.

Formally known as Digital Outreach, the organisation was set up in 2007 as a joint venture to engage a number of target audiences with important messages around the Digital TV Switchover. It quickly became clear that the outreach model they had pioneered was highly effective in engaging audiences who are harder to reach and in encouraging individuals to take action.

Founder, Ian Agnew explains the model: “Outreach Solutions commission voluntary and community sector organisations to deliver messages and information which have a social value, through community groups, local networks and in-home services, and have to date provided the voluntary sector with a much needed £11.9 million of income. “

The model has since been successfully transferred to other industry sectors and topics, ranging from health awareness to caring for the environment.

Today, Outreach Solutions programmes include Tackling Fraud Together 2020 – an award winning fraud prevention campaign aimed at the over 55’s which is rolling out across the country with the help of CSR funding from Experian, as well as providing information around the 4G mobile rollout on behalf of at800, and working with Northern Ireland Water to help reduce blockages and inform individuals and businesses on measures on how to save water.

To date, Outreach Solutions have reached 1.2 million individuals directly, with research suggesting an indirect reach of 4.8 million based on people passing the messages on through word of mouth.

Sarah Jones, Chair Of Outreach Solutions said: “We are extremely proud of our record of improving people’s lives and making a lasting difference for clients and delivery partners we have worked with, and will continue to develop strong partnerships with those organisations who share our values.”
