Annual Report

By advertising in our annual report, you can promote your service to over 28,000 plus contacts, including policy makers, key influencers, government, social housing providers, non-profit organisations and people from diverse, multiracial communities across Scotland. Your advertisement will also support a good cause - this charity’s humanitarian work with those facing poverty, homelessness and destitution. A copy of last year’s report with advertisers and more information about our work can be found here.

We will be launching the report at our AGM in autumn in front of 200 members and invited guests. We will also be posting out copies across Scotland to BME/refugee/new migrant groups, housing and voluntary organisations, politicians, faith groups, equality organisations, government officials and many others with an interest in our work. A PDF format will be sent out electronically to over 24,000 subscribers. By taking out an advert you are guaranteed excellent exposure across Scotland and are supporting our humanitarian work. 

A full page advert costs £595 (zero vat), and a half page advert costs £295 (zero vat). There are also premium positions and lower costs listed below.  If you'd like to take out an advert, just email us stating your preferred size and relevant contact details. We will then contact you about artwork and invoicing. (If you have previously advertised, we may already have a copy  – so let us know). The deadline for artwork is 12 Noon Monday 30 July 2012.

We are facing a tough financial climate and increasing pressure to deliver our humanitarian work.

We would therefore encourage you to get your organisation or company to take out an advert.

The Planner is an excellent ‘diversity tool’. It has all the dates of the major religious festivals as well as public holidays, to help you to plan your meetings or events sensitively around key religious festivals which may be celebrated by your members, service users or employees.

The profits generated from the planner, after paying for the print costs, go straight to our humanitarian projects. 

We distribute 1,000 Wallplanners across Scotland, to to our members, all minority ethnic, refugee and new migrant groups and organisations, registered social landlords, voluntary organisations, politicians and our funders and supporters. Public bodies and politicians will also get complimentary copies, giving you year round advertising. By booking an advert you will also be demonstrating your support for our humanitarian work too.
