About PIRC

PIRC works to support our movements—for equality, anti-oppression, and climate justice—to tell better stories for a just world:

  • We connect diverse groups, in participatory spaces, to share knowledge, develop strategies and strengthen movements;
  • We carry out strategic research to support this work;
  • And we create and openly share resources and tools for developing better strategy and communications.

For us, this work is not just about communication: our practices must reflect and strengthen the stories we tell, and the values that underpin them. Our approach is strongly rooted in the social sciences, and is led by principles of:

  • liberation
  • connection
  • participation
  • creativity
  • connection with the natural world

We advocate an approach that can be used by grassroots groups with limited financial resources, who often find themselves excluded by mainstream strategic communications work.

We are a small charity with a flat-management structure: we share the responsibilities involved in managing and developing our organisation, with support from our fabulous trustees. We are all expected to take an active role in developing our strategy, projects, and ways of working – and we all have equal decision-making power in these areas.

Our office is based in beautiful Machynlleth, on the edge of the Snowdonia national park, but we also work remotely. There are currently six of us (plus Poppy, the dog) and we generally work a three- or four-day week because we think it’s good for us.
