How we help RSPCA

  • Timely Updates
    The timely emails, updates and accessible information that DeHavilland provides means that the RSPCA public affairs team are ahead of the curve. The team can prepare ahead of time and form its responses and strategy knowing that they are very well informed.
  • A Team to trust
    If the RSPCA public affairs team need a bit more information or an answer to a question, DeHavilland policy specialists are always there for them. The DeHavilland team understand the work of the RSPCA, and the RSPCA public affairs team have confidence and trust in the DeHavilland team.
  • Never failing to plan
    The RSPCA public affairs team benefit from the DeHavilland online planner. Our data means that they can plan their work in the short, medium and long term. It allows them to prioritise their workload, which is vital in a political environment that can sometimes seem reactive and sporadic, and when you need to make every moment of your work count for the organisation.
  • Evaluating impact
    DeHavilland tracks every mention of RSPCA on social media and in press releases, and in parliamentary debates and Select Committees. They know precisely what Westminster politicians and other organisations say about them. This is a great way for the public affairs team to measure and evaluate their work and impact.
