The Diocese of Plymouth is the Catholic Church in the South West of England and incorporates 66 parishes across Cornwall, Devon and Dorset. It appointed KOR to help it achieve its aim to promote the Diocese’s core activities and priorities, share news of its good work and provide communications to support its property development and restoration work.
KOR developed a full communications strategy to support the mission and values of the Diocese, and implemented a programme of proactive communications to raise the profile of its work in the community.
This has been achieved through generating opportunities for regional and local press coverage, creating content for its website and on social media. KOR also provides planning guidance and advice, as well as communications to support the Diocese’s property development projects. Our focus is on ensuring the smooth delivery of this work, while protecting the integrity of the church in the community and dealing with any issues as they arise.
Following the closure of all churches during the Covid-19 pandemic, we liaised with the media to generate positive coverage reflecting the work of the Diocese to support those affected, and promoting the actions put in place so people could continue to worship.
