Approach

WE TARGET ISSUES WITH THE GREATEST POTENTIAL FOR SYSTEMIC IMPACT

We support leaders that make a direct human impact and think systemically about the change they would like to see.

We fund in the areas where there is critical need, where we can add value, and where there is an opportunity to bring about systemic change.

Big Change backs pioneers who have a vision and are already striving to deliver transformational change. Our project partners think big, take leaps and make things happen because they understand there’s no time to waste. Together, we can accelerate the change we all want to see to deliver a future in which all young people thrive.

We support project partners that are pre-start up or at small scale, but have the potential to grow in size and impact.

As well as granting money, we work alongside our project partners, to understand their needs and work collaboratively to help achieve them.

We support project partners that are pre-start up or at small scale, but have the potential to scale nationally. As well as granting money, we are also committed to working alongside our project partners, to understand their needs and work collaboratively to help achieve them.

We specialise in three areas of development:

1. Creating conditions for impact and learning

We support our project partners to be set up to gather the insights and information necessary to demonstrate the importance of their work, and generate learnings not just for themselves but for the sector as a whole.

2. Driving demand and visibility

We support project partners to boost their profile within the education and learning space, and help them leverage their impact and insights to increase the sector’s demand for their interventions.

3. Building a wider network of support

Through helping project partners clearly articulate their impact and boost the visibility of and demand for their intervention, we look to set them up to widen their network of supporters – including other funders.
