Big Change
Big Change has a fundamental belief in the UK’s young people. They’re our priority, our passion, and our inspiration. And everything we do is designed to help them be the very best version of themselves. Helping them rise above and beyond their circumstances, and giving them the opportunity, motivation and courage to see the positive differences they can make for themselves, for others, and for their community. How do we do it? By identifying, partnering with and connecting like-minded organisations and individuals who are all striving to accelerate positive change. We raise money and awareness around key issues for youth in the UK. We support the people and projects at the heart of communities that are doing important, innovative work at ground level to make a real difference. And they’re people who are not afraid to work together to bring brilliant ideas to life.

Mavericks entrepreneurs believe in the collision of more profits, more fun and more giving. The intersection of bold business initiatives, joyful expression and greater meaning for 21st century business leaders.

You can help support making a positive change for young people through donating to the STRIVE challenge. And the more donations we get the more likely we are to wear something somewhat ridiculous and instigate a bit of Maverick Mayhem during the triathalon!
