This might be a useful media for many small organisations and companies. The Hammersmith and Fulham Refugee Forum had a problem: that refugees and asylum seekers mostly get terrible coverage in the press. So they actively set about to change that and conceived a media strategy with help from ICAR.
Given that trying to get positive media coverage about asylum seekers and refugees is a difficult task in our media climate, their report on the experience is very interesting. It also has a section on ‘guidance for dealing with the media’. I’m sure some of our readers would find that helpful.
