Photos are vital to our work as a charity; we use them on our website, printed collateral and social media. Effective management of our photo library is really important, both to ensure that we have consent from those within the images to use within our marketing materials and that photos are easily accessible to members of the team who need to use them.
Good management of our photo library will also to enable us to understand the diversity within our photos and identify any gaps, as we want to make sure our photos reflect the diverse community we represent and the inclusive culture we work hard to foster at The Charity.
