Care PR success helps to ensure a bumper spread of coverage for care and housing provider’s home of the future


Care PR success for Blackwood Hosue launch

THE Blackwood House is a truly revolutionary step forward in care which transforms the day-to-day lives of disabled people and enables them to live as independently as possible.

As a care and housing specialist who places an emphasis on making its homes as accessible as possible, Blackwood launched a working replica of the Blackwood House on December 4 at the Edinburgh Community Rehabilitation and Support Service in Longstone.

Such a momentous occasion deserved to be spread far and wide across the media and as Blackwood’s trusted Care PR advisors, we set about devising a plan to ensure this happened. Our contacts across the local, national and trade media delivered a host of top results.

Highlights included:

  • Packed media attendance on the day as Councillor Ricky Henderson officially opened the House
  • STV news feature on TV, catch up and online choc-full with a host of Blackwood’s key messages
  • Video feature and article on The Edinburgh Reporter
  • Host of social shares across Twitter, Facebook and Instagram reaching over 25,000
  • Our in-house video team produced a video on the day for Blackwood’s social channels, website and presentations
  • Online and print media coverage in key titles such as Edinburgh Evening News, The National, Third Force News and many others
  • A total of reach of over 700,000 people

By ensuring the great coverage, the Blackwood House launched with a bang and as many interested parties wishing to bring the technology to their council area were able to find out more about its benefits.
