Media Centre

Communications and Media Section

The Derry City and Strabane District’s Press Office is based within the Corporate Communications Unit providing a proactive press and media service dedicated to providing up to date information about Council events and services.

The Communications Section leads on all aspects of the Council’s Public Relations and Communication activities as well as providing advice and support to all council departments, the Mayor and its members.

Through the distribution of information highlighting the diverse range of council-led programmes and events this section works to establish and maintain a positive profile for the council and the district. This is achieved on a day to day basis through issuing press releases, organising press conferences, photo calls, briefings and launches as well as dealing with media enquiries and updating the Council’s social media platforms.

The Press Office also provides professional PR advice to officers and members on the planning of effective media campaigns around events and announcements. Media monitoring and evaluation provided by the Press team is key to assessing the effectiveness of council marketing campaigns in terms of reaching wider audiences and achieving value for money.
