Buddy Bag Foundation

48,000 children require emergency accommodation in the UK each year. Children fleeing violent situations often have to leave home quickly without the chance to collect basic items. These children arrive in emergency accommodation with just the clothes they are wearing.

Buddy Bag Foundation restores a sense of safety and security into a child’s life during a traumatic time is one of the first steps to recovery. Buddy Bags are something a child can call their own, no matter where they go. Tailored across a wide age range from new born babies to teenagers, they contain all the essential items a child needs straight away, such as toiletries, pyjamas, socks and underwear. They also include comfort items, such as a book, and a teddy bear.

We also host Team Building Buddy Bag Brigades where we bring together a group of Volunteers to help pack 180 Buddy Bags which are delivered to children in Women’s Refuge.


Lindengate is a mental health charity that offers specialised gardening activities to help those with mental health needs in their continuing recovery.

Getting people out of their homes and mixing with others outdoors is a catalyst to break down their social isolation and encourage recovery. STH is recognised to be beneficial for a wide range of mental health needs including anxiety, depression, loneliness as well as for people with autism, dementia and head injury.

Helen Pettifer Training

We find businesses typically come to us because they are concerned about failing to meet the regulatory guidance on consumer vulnerability. They’ve become aware their staff are not fully skilled, equipped and confident to identify and support vulnerable customers. As we start working together, they can also become conscious that they may not have the correct standards and processes in place, or these are now out of date and irrelevant. The work we do with businesses, is typically in one or more of the following ways: · Creating and implementing vulnerable customer standards · Providing advice and support in creating a vulnerable customer policy · Designing and delivering vulnerable customer training programmes Of course all of this work is in line with the FCA’s latest guidance paper. Contact us for a FREE no-obligation exploratory conversation.

Time To Change Bucks

Mental ill-health is the leading cause of sickness absence in the UK, costing an average of £1,035 per employee per year. Looking after the mental health of your employees makes business sense: tackling stigma can make a real difference to sickness absence rates, presenteeism levels, staff wellbeing and productivity, and retention. Since signing the Employer Pledge, 95% of employers said it had a positive impact on their organisation. Taking the employers pledge is free of charge and we make many free resources available on how to manage Mental Health and stigma in the workplace.
