As a distributed and innovative mission-driven social business, we aim to:

  • Be nimble and flexible in our response to requests

  • Model new approaches and collaborative working

Our Programme Partnerships provide an opportunity to work with others for longer periods that add more value over time, build local capacity and explore new materials and approaches.
