Disability newspaper All Together NOW! hires first development officer

One of the Liverpool Echo’s top sales managers has joined the team at the free health and disability newspaper, All Together NOW!

Helen McLoughlin was recently recruited as the charity’s first ever development officer and now takes responsibility for all advertising, sponsorships and funding opportunities.

Helen said, “I’ve been fortunate to have had a long and rewarding career with the Echo, Trinity and Reach. Now I’m really looking forward to ensuring that All Together NOW! becomes an even better publication that can help even more people and organisations across the region.”

One of Helen’s first targets is to forge more relationships with public sector bodies.

“All Together NOW! is perfectly placed to help health trusts and councils get vital messages to huge numbers of readers who are faced with disability and long-term health issues.”

More than 60,000 copies of the paper are picked up, mainly at supermarkets and hospitals across Merseyside and Cheshire.

Printed by the Echo, All Together NOW! was launched in 2005 with funding from the former North West Development Agency, Liverpool Chamber of Commerce, and a number of other grants.

Since then, the newspaper has gone from strength to strength, winning a string of community and media awards and attracting funding from local charitable trusts including the Steve Morgan Foundation, John Moores Foundation, PH Holt Foundation, Eleanor Rathbone Charitable Trust, Medicash Foundation, the Duchy of Lancaster Benevolent Fund and the Liverpool Metro Mayor’s Emergency Covid-19 Fund.

Funding for McLoughlin’s new role has been provided jointly by the Government’s Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport and the Steve Morgan Foundation.

A bumper spring edition of All Together NOW! is due to roll off the presses towards the end of next month.
