The Week in Charities

Macmillan is to launch a campaign to break the silence around sex for those with cancer. The cancer charity is calling on health professionals to talk to people about the impact cancer may have on their sexual relationships, and will promote its support services to cancer sufferers. It has created a viral, and a series of video clips that will be placed on its site in mid-May.

Bright One, a volunteer-run agency for charities, is working with Refugee Week to help publicise its Simple Acts campaign. Refugee Week is a programme of events that celebrates the contribution of refugees to the UK. The campaign aims to inspire individuals to use small, everyday actions to change perceptions of refugees.

Amazon has been brought in to launch a new charity brand, formed by the merger of two substance misuse charities, Rubgy House and ARP, in February. The agency will support the launch of the organisation to clients and stakeholders later in the summer. It will also attempt to raise its profile through a media relations campaign.
