The Taylor Bennett Foundation’s work is only possible because of the support of numerous companies and individuals working in the PR, communication and media sectors, and beyond. We are delighted to have the support of so many committed partner organisations and individuals – most of whom are listed on this page – who invest their time, effort and money in helping us nurture the next generation of talented communicators from ethnic minority backgrounds.

There are a number of ways you can support the Foundation’s work.

Financial contributions, whatever the size, are gratefully received and play a vital role. Individuals can donate online here. Companies can sponsor specific TBF programmes as ‘lead supporters’, or support other areas of the Foundation’s work with financial or ‘in kind’ contributions. To discuss how you can help email Foundation Director Anne Groves at

The contribution of time by numerous PR and media companies and professionals – by hosting trips, being a guest speaker, or mentoring a trainee – is also key to the success of TBF. These sessions provide both insight and inspiration to our trainees, and greatly enhance the experience we are able to offer. To discuss supporting the Foundation in this way contact Course Director Sarah Stimson at
