ChangeGroup’s founders and employees recognise their corporate and social responsibility and are actively involved in supporting charitable work around the globe. The Tree Foundation is at the heart of this work.

Race for Life
Race for Life is Cancer Research UK’s flagship event, with over 300 events taking place across the UK. Read their story so far and find out how women coming together across the UK to walk, jog or run 5k or 10k is helping to beat cancer.
Cancer Research UK
Cancer Research UK is the world’s leading charity dedicated to beating cancer through research. They have saved millions of lives by discovering new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer.
Rainforest Concern is a Registered Charity in the UK, established to protect threatened natural habitats and the biodiversity they contain, together with the indigenous people who still depend on them for survival. The world’s tropical rainforests are the richest and most diverse habitats on earth. They represent a vast reservoir of knowledge and contain a wealth of ecosystems and wildlife, with many species still undiscovered.
Save the Children
Many children around the world still die because their parents cannot get the treatment they need, or afford enough food to keep them healthy. And in the UK, 1.6 million children are living in severe poverty. Being born into a poor family dramatically reduces a child’s chances of a brighter future. This must change.
Around the world, more than 8 million children died last year, most from preventable conditions and diseases. Almost all of these child deaths take place in developing countries, and within these countries children from the poorest backgrounds are least likely to survive. Save The Children’s research has shown that even relatively poor countries like Bolivia and Ghana have reduced the numbers of children dying. They’ve done this by focusing resources on helping the poorest and most disadvantaged people.
Countries making slow or no progress on reducing the number of children dying tend to have greater disparities between the richest and poorest people living there. This shows that the approach a government takes – not its resources – is most important in reducing child mortality.
Oxfam GB is a leading international NGO with a worldwide reputation for excellence in the delivery of aid and development work. Their purpose is to work with others to overcome poverty and suffering. Oxfam GB is a member of Oxfam International and is a registered charity in England and Wales (number 202918) and Scotland (SC039042).
Supporting Local Charities
Ride Against Cancer
Although ChangeGroup supports worthwhile causes across the globe it also has the interests of the local communities at heart too. For example in 2010 it supported members of staff to ride for the RideAgainstCancer team to raise funds for the Paediatric Oncology and Haematology ward of Southampton General Hospital. The members of staff were amongst those who rode 270 miles ‘off road’ from North Wales over Snowdonia, the Brecon Beacons and the Gower Peninsula to South Wales and raised over £13K by their efforts.
