The week in charities

The Centre for Strategy is offering £3,000-worth of free communications, management and administration training to a small or medium-sized charity.

The training company wants to choose a charity of the year for 2010. Charities should visit www.the-centre.co.uk for more details. The deadline is 16 December.

The Anthony Nolan Trust has appointed Tracey Sands as head of communications and public affairs in a newly created role. Sands has spent the past three years as head of PR and media at the National Autistic Society.

The NCT has hired Amazon PR to increase recognition of its work on the social aspects of becoming a parent - from work-life balance to consumer issues. Amazon will target social affairs journalists, features writers and broadcast producers to make the NCT one of the first ports of call for comment on a range of parenting issues.

Bright One Communications has calculated it has provided £180,000-worth of PR support to smaller charities in its first year of operation. The success of the volunteer-run comms agency for the third sector landed founder Ben Matthews a place in Future 100's Young Social Entrepreneurs of the Year.
