Media relations

The Media Relations team manages the relationship with the media by:

  • pitching newsworthy stories on your behalf and helping you prepare for any interviews
  • dealing with incoming enquiries
  • responding to anything sensitive or potentially damaging in the media, and monitoring coverage.

We also work closely with our social media colleagues. Together we can advise on the best ways to use social media or what to do if you encounter problems.

The Media Relations team (which includes the press office) should be your first point of contact for local, national, international and trade media.
