UNIVERSITY students, Katrina, Katie and Ellen, decided they would give back to their local community when their universities were closed over lockdown, gaining useful work experience at the same time.

The students provided invaluable service and help to the Bield at home team and made a positive impact on all of the families and residents.

As a result of our social care PR work, this story achieved the following highlights:

Bield Area Manager, Lorna Smith, thanked the students for their hard work saying “Katrina, Katie and Ellen provided an invaluable service to our hard-working team. They each approached this difficult, and in many ways vital role with enthusiasm and dedication.”

The Holyrood PR team contacted the three students and assembled four separate releases, three of which were regionalised in order of university.

Initial press coverage attracted the attention of TV channel That’s TV who wanted to interview the students about their experience with the Bield at Home team.

Not only does this coverage highlight the important work Bield do each day, but it also illustrates the importance social care has on those most vulnerable in our society.

On top of that, the coverage helps attract the best talent, and brightest opportunities in its sector.
