Abstract

Case studies, are the ‘golden ingredient of every charity story’ observes non-profit media specialist, Gideon Burrows (2013). Case studies are used to exemplify third sector work, issues and causes. They have been used for centuries as part of non-profit communication strategies to secure social change and to attract support for causes. Their use is still widespread in the non-profit sector across shared, owned, paid for, and earned media. The authors of this chapter explore how fit for purpose they are in the 21st Century in relation to some ethical issues.
