Established in 2005, Principle is a small but passionate company of dedicated professionals. We were founded with one aim in mind: to help charities and socially-driven organisations get their voices heard when it matters.
We bring fresh thinking and an innovative perspective to all our projects and have a proven track-record in providing successful campaigns for some of the UK’s most forward thinking charities.
Our approach is simple and effective: we integrate our support into your organisation, working closely with your team, working from your offices whenever required. All that matters to us is that we help your message stand out.
Since 2017 we have been operating as a Social Enterprise. This means all our profits are reinvested in the business and help fund our mentoring and training programme which helps marginalised young people gain work experience.
In addition to this we also provide pro-bono strategy and training sessions to up to 4 small charities every year.
