Is anyone else confused by the apparent duplication and competition amongst Ovarian Cancer charities?
It was recently brought to my attention that at least 3 of the UK-wide Ovarian Cancer charities are producing and distributing their own literature to raise awareness of the symptoms of Ovarian Cancer.
We're all aware of the constraints on funding these days and many of us are actively supporting these charities by volunteering or raising funds so we want our hard-earned cash to be spent well.
I should just like to make a call for charities to work together on Awareness-Raising Leaflets and to stop duplication. Would it be possible, I wonder, for the major Ovarian Charities to work together to identify the audience for each type of leaftlet and then to produce joint flyers for each audience. It must make sense cost-wise and to reach out to the maximum number of people. Surely this is the purpose of the flyers?
The joint literature could bear all their logos and contact details.
Am I alone with this thought?
