BRAC UK
Organisation

Founded in Bangladesh and now working in eleven countries, we are by some measures the largest non-governmental organisation in the world, an innovator in poverty eradication and a social enterprise offering sustainable pathways out of poverty. Demonstrating the power of a holistic, community-based approach and best known for the scale of our programmes we have created opportunities for 135 million people, mostly women, to create lasting change.

Poor communities are crucial actors and change makers in development and not passive recipients of aid. Working together we design programmes that promote social inclusion through microfinance, education, healthcare, agriculture, livelihood support, legal aid services, community empowerment and profit making social enterprises which feedback into development and take a triple bottom line approach.

BRAC UK works as part of the international BRAC family to raise awareness and funds for our low cost, high impact approach. Developing partnerships in Europe with non-governmental organisations, academics, research institutes, the private sector and governments.

Royal Parks Foundation
Organisation

We exist to raise funds and awareness to support the magic of London's eight amazing Royal Parks, now and in the future.

Looking after 5,000 acres of carefully conserved urban parkland, home to hundreds of thousands of trees, plants and wildlife, plus numerous historic monuments and of course more than 77 million visitors each year, is no small task.

Whilst The Royal Parks receives a government grant for the day-to-day care and management of the lawns, flower beds, roads and paths - keeping them safe and clean, in beautiful condition and bursting with life all year round - that grant has just been cut by more than 25% and there is little or no funding for sport, education, art, heritage restoration or wildlife conservation projects.

So that’s where we come in! We’re a small, energetic team of people who work incredibly hard to raise funds, make the most of every relationship and create a wide variety of innovative projects to make The Royal Parks better spaces for nature and places for people in the heart of London.
