We Influence

We champion the work of small and local charities and raise awareness of the challenges they face with influencers and policymakers. Drawing from the relationships we build and the evidence we gather we push for changes to policy and practice to help charities thrive and to address the root causes and consequences of complex social issues.

The Transform programme gave us the tools to run a successful campaign. The training and support from Lloyds Bank Foundation helped us develop a strategy and Theory of Change, breaking down what we want to achieve and how to do it.

The workshop on how to use the Value of Small research in the funding applications was very useful and I feel renewed confidence in approaching and if necessary, challenging the funding.
