Lincoln based agency Social Change UK has moved from shared office space on the outskirts of Lincoln to bigger offices in the city centre to accommodate a growing team and take forward their plans to help support social entrepreneurs in the city.
The company, which will celebrate 10 years this year, is a specialist research and behaviour change agency working right across the UK on tough social issues such as knife crime, climate change and obesity. They work with Government departments, the public sector, charities, business and brands.
Last month, three new team members joined the team, taking the core staff to nine in Lincoln. They welcomed PR and copywriter Sophie, creative designer Jake and marketing manager Chloe to its group of changemakers. Over the last two years, the business has secured contracts and new clients to the value of nearly £1million.
The move to Mint Street in Lincoln will also allow the company to support entrepreneurs who want to start and grow businesses that impact positively on people and the planet. From September 2019, Social Change UK will provide space for entrepreneurs and host talks for local businesses who want to explore or lead purpose-led enterprises.
Kelly Hunstone, Chief Executive at Social Change UK said: “This is a really exciting time for us, and we have some really ambitious plans over the next few years. I’m lucky to have a fantastic and very passionate team who are making a huge difference, using their skills to help our clients tackle issues many would consider hard to crack”.
She continued: “Our work with businesses and brands is growing as many recognize the importance of profit with responsibility. Our move to bigger offices is the start of a new adventure to work with fellow changemakers who want to grow purpose-led businesses – the kind people feel good working for, or buying from”
