Meet the team
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.
If you would like to stay up to date with what we are working on you can sign up to our quarterly email update by clicking here.
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 four small charities every year.
