A force for good – Resilience Task Force

Since the start of the coronavirus outbreak, businesses worldwide have sought to do whatever they can to proactively respond to the crisis. Here at Forepoint, we’re no different.

Over the past few weeks, members of our design and digital teams have been busy volunteering their experience and expertise to leading clinical psychologist, trauma expert and visiting professor at University of Sunderland, Dr. Warren Larkin.

Working alongside the mental health campaigner and former care minister, Sir Norman Lamb, the two experts have been busy – successfully enlisting an ever growing number of individuals and organisations in support of a campaign calling on the UK Government to convene a Resilience Task Force to respond to the psychosocial aftermath of the coronavirus public health crisis.

Since its launch, the campaign has already received extensive coverage in the media, including the Telegraph, BBC News channels and across social media, with more planned activity due to take place over the next few weeks and months.

Just two days into the campaign, Twitter impressions had already hit just shy of half a million impressions, with a unique potential reach of just under 200,000. In addition, within the space of 10 hours, the hashtag #resiliencetaskforce had been used in over 100 tweets.

Forepoint Managing Director Steve Gill, commenting on the partnership said:

“The Resilience Task Force is a cause we strongly believe in, which is why we’ve been happy to volunteer our creative design and digital expertise to support both Warren and Norman. It’s extremely rewarding and satisfying for everyone to have an opportunity to contribute to such an important campaign. We remain 100% committed to doing whatever we can to maintain the ongoing success of it.
“To achieve cut-through at a local and national level, we have provided consultancy services and have helped develop the communication strategy, campaign identity, channels and assets.
“The whole team’s been fantastic, pulling together under extremely tight deadlines to deliver a campaign with impact; ensuring a consistent identity and message across a range of channels.”

Dr Warren Larkin, tweeting his appreciation for the work completed by Forepoint said:

Forepoint have been brilliant! Going above and beyond, time after time. Thank you for supporting the presentation of our campaign and for giving so much of your time and expertise to help me and @normanlamb get these important messages across.
