Uniting, one of the largest not-for-profit organisations in Australia offering over 550 services across NSW and the ACT, has recently launched a new brand campaign via DDB Remedy, that celebrates its staff’s commitment and understanding of its customers, residents and their families.
The emotive campaign focuses on the quality of care provided by Uniting employees and supports consideration of Uniting’s primary services, including residential aged care, home and community care, independent living.
While Uniting’s heritage has been in aged care, raising awareness of Uniting’s services for children via early learning was also critical to the campaign.
Says Scott Smith, ECD, DDB Remedy: “People entering aged care and or enrolling their children into early learning are at vulnerable stages of life and often facing crucial ‘change’ moments. From a creative standpoint, it was about sharing the way Uniting carers and educators empower and support their charges through those moments, emotionalising the brand to create a lasting connection with the audience.
“We are incredibly proud of the work and the role we’ve played in driving Uniting’s evolution to emotional advertising.”
The multi-channel campaign encompasses; press, radio, OOH, social in addition to two 30” TVCs, cutdowns and 60” versions for cinema and online.
