Strategic PR & communications support that helps our clients

get their voices heard

About us

High-Rise is a strategic PR & communications agency with a specialism in working with third sector and B2B organisations that provide social value to people and communities.

Our clients span from charities and social enterprises to professional service businesses and technology providers.

What we do

We work closely with our clients to understand their goals, advise how a PR strategy could align with those benchmarks and think creatively about how they can connect with their target audience.

No project is ever too big or too small. As long as you’re happy to have a chat, we’re all ears.

Why we’re different

We listen carefully to what our clients say they need and then advise on the best communications approach – making sure budget is used wisely and reaches the right target audiences.

From helping you organise an event that gets the right people in the room, to developing a PR campaign to raise your profile and support your strategic goals, we can help.
