We believe good causes have the greatest stories to tell…

…but they don’t always have the skills or capacity in-house to share them.


Kirsty and Grace founded Yellow Jigsaw in 2014 to meet this skills gap in the not-for-profit sector – combining events and media expertise to deliver award-winning communications strategies and campaigns for charities and social enterprises across the North West.

The team also use their down-to-earth, supportive and tailored approach to deliver community reporter training that is at the heart of our mission to ensure every person can broadcast their views and stories. We’ve worked with more than 1000 children to turn them into Media Cubs mini reporters, created a Queens Award-winning news team of older people and worked with partners to create news teams within their organisations.
