Forster Communications is an award-winning social change PR agency, working with businesses and charities to protect and improve lives. Established in 1996, we have a 20 year track record of delivering measurable value for our clients, their stakeholders and wider society.

Social change PR starts at the top. We work with senior leaders and boards to articulate their vision and values, and then bring it to life through engaging communications that builds brands, encourages participation and drives positive change.

Forster Communications and the Sustainable Development Goals

We were founded nearly two decades ago by Jilly Forster as a business focused on social change. Since then we’ve inspired people to give up smoking and take more exercise, transformed attitudes to mental health, got thousands of people out on their bikes, helped turn small ethical businesses into mainstream successes, and developed movements that have changed society for the better.

Along the way we have always walked the talk with our own policy and practice and been recognised for our impact through winning awards. But we feel we have only really just got started.

Today, we are a founding UK B Corporation and owned and run by our employees. Everyone has an active voice and clear incentive to do the best work they can for our clients.  Whether it’s driving consumer choice, pioneering industry best practice or setting up innovative partnerships, we are all working towards the Sustainable Development Goals and committed to creating measurable change.

Since our launch in 1996, we have been measuring the impact we’ve made on the world. Every two years we have worked with independent auditors to chart our progress against set sustainability targets, to check that our policies are still relevant and best practice, and to publically share what we’ve learned.

Our 2016 Social Change report outlines some of our successes in delivering positive social change for clients since we were founded alongside our ambitions and aims for the future.
