Writing, editing and layout of a series of research, advocacy, evaluation and impact reports.
The British Red Cross is part of a global voluntary network that responds to conflicts, natural disasters and individual emergencies. Based on its experience of helping people across the UK, the Red Cross produces regular reports that aim to address the root causes of crises by influencing government policy on health and social care, first aid, refugees and asylum seekers, and international humanitarian action.
Green Ink has worked with the British Red Cross on a range of reports, including Putting the wheels in motion: Assessing the value of British Red Cross short-term wheelchair loan, Can’t Stay. Can’t Go: Refused asylum seekers who cannot be returned, and Are prehospital deaths from trauma and accidental injury preventable?
The projects generally focus on sympathetic editing to retain the flavour and nuances of the text, as written by the authors, while ensuring the clarity and impact of the message and adherence to Red Cross style. We then lay out the text to the Red Cross design template, selecting appropriate images to illustrate key points and preparing tables and figures in series style.
“We have 320 lovely, snazzy reports. Love the print finish,” said Chloë Carter, Policy & Advocacy Manager for the British Red Cross, on receipt of ‘Wheels in motion’, a 52-page report that we edited, designed, laid out, and printed, and delivered for a launch within just four weeks.
“With the patience, time and great work that Sue and Pete have put into this report I most definitely look forward to working you all again!” said Catherine Blanchard, Senior Researcher for the British Red Cross on ‘Can’t Stay. Can’t Go’, an advocacy report on refused asylum seekers.
