    Frequently Asked Questions

    When would a charity need crisis communications?

    A charity may need crisis communications support where unexpected events or issues arise that could significantly impact its reputation, operations, or stakeholder relationships. 

    As crisis communications consultants, Alder specialise in supporting charities at such times. Any problem can become a headline and negative media coverage, online criticism, or misinformation campaigns can lead to reputational damage, requiring a comprehensive strategic response.

    We help charities ensure their communications inspire stakeholder trust and protect their long-term reputation and mission. Being prepared with a crisis communication plan in place can significantly help in navigating challenging circumstances effectively.
