Cornwall Housing needed an expert copywriter and master of plain English to help make changes in the way they communicate with residents. We helped them to develop new tone of voice guidelines, building these from the ground up and ensuring staff involvement and engagement at all times.
Phase 1 involved information gathering sessions with members of the Cornwall Housing team, including preparation and delivery of a pack of digital training materials.
Phase 2 was the production of tone of voice guide, training materials and templates based on the above, plus digital rollout of the new tone of voice via online training sessions.
Phase 3 provided 50 rewrites of existing letters and forms.
