The PRCA is offering six months of free individual membership to PR professionals who have lost their job or who are self-employed and have experienced a decline in their income as a result of the COVID-19 crisis.
The offer is open to those who are already members of the PRCA as well as non-members, and the industry body plans to accept the word of practitioners who report financial losses.
‘Sadly, plenty of people in our industry have already lost their job or their income, or will do so in the coming months,’ said PRCA Director General Francis Ingham of the move.
‘There is no small print – we shall take accept people’s own judgement when they say they’ve lost a ‘significant’ amount of self-employed income. It’s important that all of us in the PR community do our best for one-another, and this is our attempt to do just that, so that people can pick up new jobs and new contracts as quickly as possible.’
