Celebrating ten years since its inception, the Strategic Mailing Partnership (SMP) now has members in all four corners of the UK to offer true regional diversity.

The SMP has nationwide support with members and board representatives from all four corners of the UK

Whilst many organisations favour London or the south-east, the SMP represents each part of the UK from Scotland and Tyneside to Devon and Northern Ireland, with just 10% of its membership based in London.

The board is made up of representatives from Edinburgh, the North East, North West, Yorkshire, the Midlands and Oxfordshire and just one board member from London to give nationwide coverage and support for the SMP.

SMP chair, Judith Donovan CBE, comments: “In contrast to some associations, which are dominated by representation in London and the South East, just 16 of our 150+ members are based in the capital.

"That means we can share our insight and expertise with members across the UK, regardless of geographical location or indeed size.

Since we launched in 2008, we have worked tirelessly to help our members engage with Royal Mail no matter where they are located

“Since we launched in 2008, we have worked tirelessly to help our members engage with Royal Mail no matter where they are located, for the good of the industry and we look forward to continuing this vital strategic relationship into the future.”

The majority of member mailing houses are based in the Midlands, followed by the South East then Yorkshire, the North East/West and central England. Seven are based in Scotland, three in Wales and one in Northern Ireland.

The SMP works to represent and protect the UK’s mailing houses by working closely with the Royal Mail and ensuring that standards are raised to promote better mail for all.
