About

The Social Change Agency specialises in creating and supporting people-powered networks and social movements. Everything we do is designed to connect people and enable them to build the skills, knowledge and networks to make change happen.   

With the COVID-19 pandemic, we are living in unprecedented and worrying times.  Yet as always,  communities are responding in amazing and generous ways to ensure people are not going through this alone.  

We, like you, want to do what we can to help. After years of supporting grassroots groups, we believe the Open Collective platform is the best we’ve seen for managing and hosting money in a totally transparent and accountable way.   This is essential to allow groups to function effectively and sustainably throughout this crisis. 

If you are a local or grassroots group with no bank account or legal status who wants to receive donations and pay expenses, you can be fiscally hosted by us through the Open Collective platform without any of the administrative headache of forming a legal entity or setting up a bank account.
