At BigChange, we do good things where we can be a force of positive change – whether for our local community, social campaigns like our Leaders for Life or global initiatives, as part as our CSR activity.
The BigChange Team get involved in whatever way they can to support good causes, be it raising funds or getting their hands dirty with physical assistance. Helping others is core to what we do, both inside and outside of our business.
“Social responsibility is at the heart of our business. We don’t stick to a set figure each year but like to give and do what we can to support great causes.”Martin Port,
Chairman & Founder
Leading the way in safety
Tragically, five people die every day through road accidents in the UK. To turn business leaders into role models, our Leaders for Life programme offers them driving analysis technology free of charge – providing tangible, confidential information to improve their driving.
“More than a fifth of all deaths and serious injuries on our roads involve someone driving for work. This statistic is a stark illustration of why CEOs must make safe driving a priority for their business. Brake is proud to support Leaders for Life, a fantastic initiative from BigChange, which helps CEOs to lead by example and promote safe driving behaviour to their employees.”
Mary Williams OBE
Chief Executive – Brake
Leaders for Life Ambassador
Giving back at home and away
As well as our sponsorship of Brake, we’re developing a Corporate Social Responsibility programme with a community and global outlook.
The prince’s responsible business network
We’re also proud to be part of a unique Business in the Community network. Working with other business leaders to share insights and expertise to create innovative programmes for social change.
Living potential farm
We rolled up our sleeves and got stuck in at the Living Potential community farm. It’s an important local project that helps people use farm work to improve their health and fitness, while gaining confidence.
We support the essential work of Transaid, delivering healthcare and making roads safer for communities in sub-Saharan Africa. BigChange Founder & Chairman Martin Port is an ambassador for the charity and visited Zambia in 2018
BIGCHANGE HAS A LARGE AND DIVERSE PORTFOLIO OF CSR AND SOCIAL IMPACT INVESTMENT AND IS PROUD TO SUPPORT CHARITY PARTNERS THROUGH ITS MONTHLY MOTIVATIONAL MONDAYS
“It was such a pleasure to be involved with Big Change Motivational Monday and I thoroughly enjoyed speaking with such a dynamic group of people about issues which are so close to my heart. There is a real synergy with what we do at The Maiden Factor Foundation and the kind donation made to our Foundation is very much appreciated, helping us to continue our work.”Tracy Edwards MBE, Founder, The Maiden Factor Foundation
The Friends of Alfie Martin were so grateful to be supported & a charity partner of Big Change Motivational Monday. During these difficult times of Covid, fundraising is particularly a challenging for all charities & we are therefore super grateful for the support, that allows us to continue to care for the critically sick babies across the Yorkshire region.
On behalf of everyone at SNAPS Yorkshire, I would like to say a huge thank you for you’re the opportunity to showcase our services at your Motivational Monday event with Ann Hiatt and for your generous donation of £550.00. With your help, we can provide vital support to families at this difficult time.
What a fantastic speaker Gabby Logan is! So inspirational. She has so much charisma and is so natural. Loved every minute.We are so grateful to BigChange for arranging such a great speaker and for supporting Yorkshire Cancer Research with Motivational Monday. It was great to see we reached over £1000 on JustGiving.
BigChange became corporate partners of Transaid in 2018, providing much needed funding, amazing auction prizes and organising events to raise our profile. It has been a pleasure to work with an organisation that shares so many of the same core values and that has the same ‘family’ feel.
Below are the main projects BigChange support on a regular and ongoing basis. Many additional one-off donations are made each year, as well as free (or reduced priced) JobWatch & JourneyWatch for charitable organisations and SII.
If you have any suggestions for charities that are close to your heart, please feel free to submit them for consideration to our CSR Director.
