The Social Change Nest

The Social Change Nest specialises in supporting people-powered networks. Through our Accountable service groups can easily receive and pay out money; taking joint control over their finances.

About

The Social Change Nest specialises in creating and supporting people-powered networks and social movements. After years of supporting and incubating grassroots groups, we know how important it is to find a shared way to transparently manage your money. 

Accountable is for groups who have no bank account or legal status and want to receive donations and pay expenses, without having to deal with the administrative headache of setting up a bank account. 

We host groups across a number of areas including Climate, Covid-19 response, Housing, and Tech. 

What can a Collective do?

We put together this FAQ doc to help you understand how the service works and decide if it’s what you’re looking for! As a Collective you can:
  • Receive donations or grants from individuals, organisations or businesses
  • Set recurring donations, such as monthly membership charges
  • Reimburse your volunteers. Pay invoices for services
  • Request money from another Collective
Open Collective also has a comprehensive page with more information about the platform here


What does The Social Change Nest provide?

We have 8 years of experience supporting grassroots organisation, community groups, and networks, to create social impact 🌍

By selecting us as your fiscal host, you’ll be able to tap into a number of our resources and become a part of a wider network of groups and individuals doing incredible work! We have a dedicated team who are here to provide support to you 7 days a week, so you can always give us a ring or email us. 

Fees
