Over the coming weeks the TUC will be raising the profile of the march so that as many people as possible come along.
An important way to raise its profile is to generate lots of media exposure with stories and features across newspapers, magazines, TV and radio.
The stories that most interest readers and listeners are ones that explain the impact of cuts through the lives of everyday people.
Recent examples of people-led stories in newspapers include the Taylor family explaining how they’ve been affected by job losses in the Guardian and single mum Katie Potter explaining how she’ll be affected by the abolition of the health in maternity grant in the Daily Mirror.
The TUC is collecting stories of people whose life has been affected by losing their job, experiencing a sharp cut in their income or having a public service that is vital to them and their family reduced or abolished altogether.
If you’ve got a story to tell, and you’re happy to tell it to a journalist, please get in touch with the TUC press office via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We can talk through what being a media case study would involve and what forms of media you’d be comfortable doing.
