The Ombudsman for Children’s Office (OCO) worked with Athena Media on our Its Your Right digital campaign to raise awareness of children’s rights among children and young people. We were absolutely delighted with the campaign which included a microsite and the App. Athena did a superb job from start to finish and far exceeded the original brief and our expectations. Helen and the team are extremely professional, the quality of the work was second to none and they were always on hand to provide advice, support and guidance throughout the months we worked with them. I would not hesitate to recommend Athena.quotation mark
