Sound crisis comms advice coupled with stunning coverage on the BBC, ITN and in regional Oxford and special educational needs trade media generated by Livewire Public Relations, brought the desperate financial plight of The ACE Centre, a charity which supports people with complex difficulties who struggle to communicate, to the personal attention of Prime Minister David Cameron. Livewire’s outstanding PR services have been instrumental in securing the crucial government funding we needed to avert the centre’s imminent closure, enabling us to continue to provide vital support to thousands of people living in Oxfordshire, Hampshire, Surrey, Sussex, Kent, Bedfordshire, Devon and Guernsey, who are unable to communicate without the aid of assistive technology. The team at Livewire did a truly outstanding job. As a trustee I also have to fit in my day job. Without their support this brilliant outcome would not have been possible.
