Status Social joins forces with Treetops Hospice

Status Social is teaming up with Derbyshire’s best-known hospice to help it raise funds and more through networks such as Facebook and Twitter.

We have named Treetops Hospice as our chosen charity for 2014 and will now take the Risley-based organisation through a full social media marketing training programme.

The free service begins with a social media strategy workshop for the marketing team at Treetops later this month.

Lizzie Banks from Treetops, which provides respite and palliative care for adults, said: “We’re really pleased to be chosen by Status Social to benefit from their expertise. It’s a brilliant opportunity for us.

“Social media is really important to us at Treetops, but as a charity we have limited resources to expand it further. When we heard that Status Social wanted to support Treetops, we were really excited.

“We can’t wait to get started in expanding our knowledge and making the most of the benefits that social media offers.”

Treetops Hospice helps people with life-limiting illnesses to achieve the best quality of life possible.

Status Social, which is based at Friar Gate Studios in Derby, already works with several charities and is regularly asked to speak about fundraising through social media at Institute of Fundraising events across the UK.

Tania Vesty from Status Social said it was difficult to decide which charity to support: “We decided upon Treetops because we could see they had embraced social media but needed help to take it to the next level.

“The work they do in Derbyshire is fantastic and we’re looking forward to helping Treetops raise their profile further, see more giving and attract more volunteers through effective use of social media.”

Status Social, which celebrates its third birthday this month, has trained nearly a thousand business people from across the East Midlands, the UK, Europe and the United States in how to use social media.
