Principle is an award-winning not for profit dedicated to helping charities and socially-driven organisations achieve
change and get their voices heard when it matters.
Founded in 2005, we have a proven track-record of successful policy change campaigns for charities, bringing fresh thinking and an innovative perspective to all our projects.
Our approach is simple and effective: we integrate our support into your organisation, working closely with your team, usually working from your offices where this is suitable for you. 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 any profits generated are reinvested in the organisation and fund our work experience programme which helps marginalised young people, and the pro-bono strategy and training sessions we offer to up to 4 small charities every year.
