Can you advise on low cost PR or marketing advice?

We are a charity, involved in organising information and training for families and staff members.  We're looking for advice on affordable PR and marketing so we can promote a new resource that we're launching in early December.  We have attended social media training, set up Facebook a/c, Twitter, arranged to have our website updated and we've organised our mailing lists.  We've also made a plan of sorts for the launch, are going to do a video for YouTube etc, however we now want to make sure we maximise the impact of the promotion at the time of the launch, and we've probably now done as much as we know how to do.  Is there a person/company that you know of that would be able to give some specific advice for our project and launch?
