Freshfield has become a supplier for the UK’s largest public sector procurement framework after securing a place on the Crown Commercial Service’s Communications Marketplace for the North West.

CCS, an Executive Agency of the Cabinet Office, allows public sector organisations to procure a wide range of PR and marketing communications services through approved agencies. These include local authorities, NHS trusts, housing associations, schools, colleges and universities. We secured our place on the marketplace following a successful appointment through the registration process.

Simon Turner, Freshfield CEO, said: “We are proud to have secured a spot on this important framework and it’s a great opportunity to grow our work and impact in this arena.

“Our team love working in the public sector as it’s very much aligned to our purpose, giving us a chance to help organisations have a real impact on people and communities.”

Freshfield provides a range of PR and marketing communications services to public sector clients including communications consultancy, PR and marketing campaigns and branding and design projects.

We work with a range of public sector and local authority organisations covering areas such as business support, education, healthcare, inward investment and regeneration. Our client experience includes Lancashire County Council, Preston City Council, Boost; Lancashire’s Business Growth Hub, Two Zero Scaleup, Bolton at Home, Lancashire LEP, LTE Group, NHS and the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan).

In 2022, Freshfield was named a Silver Winner in the Best Use of Media Relations Category at the annual CIPR PRide North West Awards for our work with Preston City Council and Preston Partnership, helping communicate the first projects of the city’s £21m Town Deal, which included the launch of a bronze bench sculpture to honour Preston-born Academy Award winner and creator of Wallace and Gromit, Nick Park.

In 2021, Freshfield won a Northern Marketing Award in 2021 for its campaign for Boost; Lancashire’s Business Growth Hub, that supported 7,000 business owners during the pandemic.

We also led a not-for-profit project with six client partners and Preston City Council to secure funding for the regeneration of Winckley Square Gardens in 2016.
