Writing services for science-based charities

I translate complex science into engaging words that are easy to follow.

Making your scientific research accessible and exciting to your supporters (and your non-research colleagues!) is really powerful. It shows them where the money’s going, helps them to feel involved in what’s going on in your organisation, and shows the advances your charity is making.

It takes a special blend of skills to make science accessible.

Turning scientific research into something that holds people’s interest (and understanding) isn’t as easy as it might sound. It takes time, patience, and a thorough understanding of the science. It also needs a knack for knowing how to explain something complicated so it makes sense to someone who doesn’t have a PhD.

Handily, I do have a PhD, along with many years of experience in writing about research for charities. Find out why I’m the right writer for the job.

There are plenty of benefits to working with me.

I’ll free up precious time for you and your in-house team to focus on other things and, as I’m used to working with tone of voice and style guidelines, I’ll slot into your established processes so you’ll hardly know I’m there.

You’ll also benefit from having the perspective of someone who doesn’t know your organisation inside out – and when you’re writing for supporters, that’s invaluable.

Like any specialist, I know my strengths.

When it comes to writing words for your charity, my skills lie very much with your science and research content. I’m afraid fundraising copy isn’t my thing – but I’ll happily point you in the direction of other copywriters who are really skilled at this, if you’d like me to. Just ask! Questions? Let’s talk.
