Freshfield lands place on key government comms framework for North West

Simon Turner

North West PR and marcomms consultancy Freshfield has been named as a supplier on Crown Commercial Service’s Communications Marketplace framework for the North West.

Freshfield, which has an award-winning public sector team and offices in Preston and Manchester, secured its place on the marketplace following successful appointment through the registration process.

CCS, an Executive Agency of the Cabinet Office, is the UK’s largest public sector procurement framework and allows public sector organisations to procure a wide range of PR and marketing communications services through approved agencies such as Freshfield. These include local authorities, NHS trusts, housing associations, schools, colleges and universities.

Freshfield provides a range of PR and marcomms services to public sector clients including communications consultancy, PR and marketing campaigns and branding and design projects.

Freshfield works with a range of public sector and local authority organisations covering areas such as business support, education, healthcare, inward investment and regeneration. Its client experience includes Lancashire County Council, Preston City Council, Boost; Lancashire’s Business Growth Hub, Two Zero Scaleup, Bolton at Home, Lancashire LEP, LTE Group, NHS and the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan).

Simon Turner, Freshfield CEO, said: “We are proud to have secured a spot on this important framework and it’s a great opportunity to grow our work and impact in this arena.

“Our team love working in the public sector as it’s very much aligned to our purpose, giving us a chance to help organisations have a real impact on people and communities.”

Among recent high-profile public sector work for Freshfield was its work with Preston City Council and Preston Partnership, helping communicate the first projects of the city’s £21m Town Deal, which included the launch of a bronze bench sculpture to honour Preston-born Academy Award winner and creator of Wallace and Gromit, Nick Park.

Freshfield also led the campaign for Boost, Lancashire’s Business Growth Hub, that supported 7,000 business owners during the pandemic and led a not-for-profit project with six client partners and Preston City Council to secure funding for the regeneration of Winckley Square Gardens in 2016.
