Grassroot Diplomat specialises in aiding communication between groups or societies and politicians. As a non-profit organisation, Grassroot Diplomat does not focus on lobbying or providing advice. Instead, the organisation offers its clients media marketing outreach services alongside diplomatic liaison, enabling clients to build new and potentially vital links with society's biggest decision makers. By opening up avenues of communication between policy-makers and members of the public, Grassroots Diplomat are able to bridge gaps between the two groups and facilitate stronger working relationships. To date, the organisation has brought its unique take on citizen diplomacy to many countries, notably the UK, the USA and Switzerland. The organisation offers a range of affordable options for its clients, whilst at all times following a strict ethical code. Grassroot Diplomat also offers a wealth of research and development opportunities. For example, examining the viewpoint of current think-tanks or key figures in government can ensure that time isn't wasted on an unsustainable idea. Grassroot Diplomat will undertake invaluable market research to ensure that a project is neither overly ambitious, nor too short-sighted to make an impact. Additionally, the organisation offers in-depth diplomatic training to those who want to further their knowledge of policy making and politics. This can be useful to allow its clients to truly understand the inner workings and the important role in society of both the Foreign Office and international diplomacy in general.
