Case Study

Allegations of inappropriate spending for a charity providing support for trauma victims

How we helped a charity navigate the press complaints system following an inaccurate report.

The Problem

The charity was the subject of prominent and negative report in a national Sunday newspaper regarding allegations of inappropriate spending. Although the charity was subsequently cleared of any wrongdoing, the newspaper refused to retract its original report, impacting significantly on the charity’s fund-raising efforts.

The Solution

The charity engaged Alder to obtain a swift and proportionate correction to help restore its reputation. By using our knowledge of the press complaints machinery, we were able to effectively engage with the newspaper’s legal department.

The Result

This resulted in the Sunday newspaper retracting their allegations with a clear and prominent correction within days of our engagement.
