The UK charity sector’s role in sustaining the fabric of communities is increasingly important as poverty spreads during the worst cost-of living crisis since the 1970s, at the same time as donations are weaker and costs are rising.

Media play a crucial role in raising the awareness, engagement and donations to charities by individuals, the bedrock of income. Selected case studies of TV, radio and the press show how charities leverage their unique qualities to engage audiences across the UK.

We highlight Gordon Brown’s landmark anti-poverty community-based Multibank initiative, which gifts essentials to those most in need, and has vital support from Sky, the Financial Times and News UK.

The Netomnia/Brsk merger will create the third largest UK altnet with 1.5 million homes passed in much the most significant altnet merger to date, combining two fast-growing, innovative challengers.

Both Netomnia and Brsk are burdened by eye-watering EBITDA losses; merger synergies alone are unlikely to solve this, with much more scale necessary, making further inorganic moves likely.

The merger creates an alternative prospect to the assumption that either CityFibre or VMO2/nexfibre will consolidate the market, but the combined group may prove more an enhanced target than an active acquirer.

Francois Godard, senior media analyst at Enders and author of the recently published book “Germany, France and Postwar Democratic Capitalism: Expert Rule,” says France’s standing with international financiers is crucial to the local economy because the “country is Europe’s primary destination for foreign direct investments.” Addressing potential consequences on the French media industry and ongoing consolidation, Godard said “if foreign financiers start deserting, it will put French companies in a difficult situation to borrow money because interest rates will inevitably go up.” France is home of some of Europe’s biggest media groups, including Vivendi, Banijay and Mediawan.
