Whitehouse Communications, an independent political communications agency based in London and Brussels, is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. A purpose driven agency, Whitehouse has been at the forefront of major campaigns over the last 25 years, including the award nominated Charlie Gard Foundation campaign to build political media support for ‘Charlie’s Law’, and the Stand with Hong Kong Campaign, where Whitehouse successfully established the APPG on Hong Kong, recently described as playing a ‘vital role’ in UK-Hong Kong relations by Anne-Marie Trevelyan MP.
Since its inception in 1998, Whitehouse has established itself as an issue-led agency with a strong ethos of social justice, whether running a media campaign to launch the Disability Employment Charter or raising awareness for the life-saving Air Ambulance Services. Providing integrated public affairs and public relations support for clients in sectors including food, technology, healthcare and human rights, Whitehouse has attracted talent which includes industry experts across numerous fields, even managing to double in size during the COVID pandemic.
Whitehouse’s commitment to social justice is reflected not only in their campaign work, but also in their hiring practices. PR Week reported that Whitehouse was among the UK’s top 5 agencies for gender and ethnicity pay equality and senior leadership representation. With a dedicated EU Public Affairs team, a Brussels office and team members from across Europe, they have navigated a post-Brexit world with a confidently international outlook, and have grown steadily during the pandemic.
It is this combination of a global, outward looking perspective, a developed issue-led ethos, laser focused expertise and a pioneering commercial spirit that has ensured Whitehouse’s continued longevity, setting it apart from its peers. Whether campaigning to secure London’s 2012 Olympic bid for Great Britain, or supporting the successful human rights campaign of the British Gurkha Welfare Society, Whitehouse have achieved a voice of authority and influence at all levels of UK and EU politics.
Chris Whitehouse, Chairman and Founder, said "When I founded Whitehouse in 1998, I could scarcely have imagined the level of success we would accomplish. Looking back over the last 25 years I take immense pride in the positive change we have achieved, thanks to the dedicated experts on our team, and our distinguished clients and partners".
