Public Affairs


H+K has been running award-winning integrated public affairs campaigns in the UK for over fifty years. 

What we do is different.

We combine our sector expertise in PR and communications with data analytics and behavioural science to power integrated public affairs campaigns designed and deliver impactful messages targeted at hard-to-reach audiences in Westminster, Whitehall and beyond to the increasingly devolved nations and regions.

At H+K, we see the whole picture: a 360+ Public Affairs approach. We help define our clients overall aims and objectives and design strategies to meet them, making sure the right message is delivered to the right people at the right time.

We help them successfully engage with their policy and regulatory stakeholders, to get on the front foot and respond to the fundamental policy challenges facing their businesses.
