COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

At SEC Newgate we get under the surface of a local community, mapping out the individuals and organisations that matter to help our clients build important relationships.


COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

We help our clients consult more effectively with communities, local politicians and the media.


We have unrivalled expertise of working with communities up and down the country, helping housebuilders, developers, retailers and many others to consult more effectively with communities and engage with local politicians and the media.

It may be a simple consultation process of exhibitions and meetings, or a multi-stage approach embracing web-based consultation, focus groups and workshops.  Clients may need to present a scheme to councillors, regional media and other local stakeholders, based on an understanding of the specific agendas that affect their views.  We are experienced in all of these tasks.

We focus exclusively on local community and political engagement.

Our community engagement team (formerly known as PPS Group), was founded in 1990 and merged with Newington Communications to become SEC Newgate UK in early 2021.
