We are Grow Social Capital
A social enterprise based in south Wales and east London working to address the challenge of changing levels of social capital in society.
Changing levels of social capital lie at the heart of many social issues and challenges we face, such as:
- declining trust in institutions, democratic processes and each other
- declining participation in civic society
- increase in the numbers of people feeling more isolated
We are pioneering new thinking and tools to transform how individuals, organizations, and communities can harness the power of social capital and be more purposeful
We work across all sectors
Founded during the pandemic, we make it easier to harness Purpose and Social Capital to support positive personal, social and economic change.
As well as respecting the contribution of stability and cohesion for creating more resilient, capable and confident communities, organizations or workplaces.
Our clients are in every sector: private, social, utility companies, and public.
Innovative and transformative
We are a talented team with expertise in community development, digital communications and brand marketing.
By bringing these together we have developed services and resources for:
- transformative changemaking
- community and organizational capacity building
- developing new strategic campaign narratives
- enhancing purposefulness
We are founding partners of the pioneering Dublin Conversations (launching in September 2023), the Wal Goch Festival and the Modern Cockney Festival. Our work has been featured on/in BBC London, S4C, Capital FM, The Star, The Telegraph, Planet, Nation Cymru.
