Who we are
Big Change is rethinking how charity can be a catalyst for positive change: helping every young person to thrive in a world of constant change.
Big Change backs the pioneers who are leading bold approaches on the frontline of change, unites supporters and activates allies as a force for real change for all young people.
The current crisis has exposed the cracks created by existing inequities in how young people are supported to thrive. These will only continue to deepen unless we seize the moment to act now, with a view to supporting long-term change.
At the end of March we adapted our project support to ensure we were responding effectively to the needs of young people, parents, teachers and communities caused or exacerbated by the pandemic. Through our Emergent Needs and Opportunities Fund we also prioritised projects that have a clear opportunity for impact now, but could also influence the ‘next normal’ in education.
All funds raised for Big Change go directly towards these projects. Meet the pioneers and see what these exceptional projects are working towards...
