Promote the Support of The Barakat Trust

The Barakat Trust are proud to be supporting your organisation. As a newly awarded project you may wish to announce your funding award to local media, and on social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter.

This is a great way to raise awareness of your project and the difference you are making. It’s also a way to show the public where the money they raise goes, and the impact it makes across the world.

Acknowledge the charity

  • Please always use our full title: The Barakat Trust.
  • Use the correct logo!


  • Identify which media titles to share the release with; you can always phone the news desk to ask whether the story would be of interest, and who the best person would be to share the release with
  • Use photography to bring your project to life! If you have images which have full permissions in place and consent has been secured for all parties featured in the images, share them with journalists alongside the press release
  • Once you have everything ready and signed off, you can start emailing your press contacts!
  • Don’t forget to add in Notes to Editors. Note to Editors follows after the body of the press release. The list provides additional and background information to aid in understanding the story. The press release copy before the notes to editors must be stand alone and understandable but the copy in ‘notes to editors’ might provide broader information and context. Examples of information for notes to editors include a short description of the organisation (called the ‘boilerplate’) and its website link.
