This booklet is designed to help volunteer-involving organisations gain media exposure and maintain it.

The tips and techniques contained in it help the user to lay the foundations for media work, make contact with journalists and sell stories, and sustain a media profile.

It follows the experiences of two case study volunteer-involving organisations who were tutored over a six month period by the Voluntary Action Media Unit (VAMU) to establish a media profile in their local area.
