We are a B Corp
Certified B Corporations are a new kind of business that balances purpose and profit. They are legally required to consider the impact of their decisions on their workers, customers, suppliers, community, and the environment. We are part of a community that is driving a global movement of people using business as a force for good.
There are fewer than 500 B Corps in the UK and only 3,500 companies
that have met the standard globally – from 100,000 applications.
Think first, then make it happen
We are always asking questions, testing assumptions and trying new approaches. That way, everything we make is hard-working and fit for purpose.
Good ideas for good causes
We love to create things that have a positive impact on society. We call it solving a problem with a purpose.
Listen and collaborate
We want to work in partnership with you. From the outset, we hold workshops and carry out user research to fully understand your world before suggesting answers.
Our content is now beautifully presented, easy to understand and offers an intuitive user journey to donate or find out more. Despite a tight deadline the team delivered exactly what we hoped for and made the entire experience a pleasure to be involved in.
