About us:

We are Kindred. A creative PR and communications agency delivering positive change.

We help brands and organisations to connect with the rising tide of consumer awareness. People today demand more. They want more action, more transparency, more responsibility. And so do we.

As an independent agency, we choose to only work with brands we admire and on problems we want to solve. 

We have a 20 year proven track record in creating campaigns that change attitudes and actions in positive, lasting ways. From a behaviour change strategy for the dairy industry to get teens to drink more milk, to creating compelling content for Government that prompted people to report modern slavery.
