    "I’ve really enjoyed working with AchieveGood. They bring social purpose, a co-design approach and technical insights that have quickly progressed our social investing and blended finance project. They engage effectively with my senior stakeholders across the public, private and third sectors, and have a unique understanding of and networks from the social investment community. We are now in a great place to turn ideas into action, achieve good and create impact together with our communities."

    Robert Pollock – CEO, Cambridge City Council

    ”It is rare that you find someone who has worked across development, business, finance and politics as AchieveGood have. They have worked with me and an ultra-high net worth family in Africa to look at how the family could transform its philanthropy and enable nation change. Their ability to think strategically, analyse problems and find solutions, and the way he connects with people really impressed me.”

    Bernard Chidzero – CEO, Agis and Chair, Steward Bank and Delta Philanthropies

  • What We Do

    We have built over £800m ($1bn) worth of partnerships in social and environmental impact

    Working with Corporates to catalyse ESG or SDG-Focused Collaboration and Partnerships

    Today's complex societal challenges necessitate cross-sector collaborations. At AchieveGood, we're skilled in creating partnerships that unite governments, foundations, businesses, and social sectors, leveraging their unique skills, experiences, and insights.


    Key Projects and Partnerships:

    • Tackling Family Poverty: Collaborating with Amazon and former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown, we've developed a model to repurpose returned goods, helping reduce family poverty. This project involved creating a business plan and fundraising strategies and helping it scale.
    • Catalysing a nationwide Covid-19 Response: We helped build YourNeighbour, the UK church's response to Covid-19, encompassing a network of 1,300 churches and 40 denominations. Our efforts included providing 2.8 million meals and creating a national helpline.

    Place-Based Impact Strategies & Investments

    Our approach to place-based social impact investing focuses on improving lives and building sustainable cities. We work closely with local governments, organizations, and communities to develop tailored strategies.


    Key Initiatives:

    • Greater Cambridge Impact: Partnering with Cambridge City Council, the universities and "It Takes A City" as part of the Council’s Our Cambridge programme, exploring social impact investing strategies to enhance local living conditions.
    • Building Collaborative Programmes: We've worked in South West England with partners including the Local Economic Partnership to explore how social impact investing could thrive there.

    Social and Impact Investing Strategies and Implementation

    We are at the forefront of social impact investing, guiding organizations to create investment strategies that yield both social impact and financial returns.


    Key work in Social Impact Investing:

    • Charitable Endowments and Impact Analysis: Advising large charities on endowment investment for maximising impact and conducting impact analysis for UK and international investors.
    • International Development Expertise: Working with global organisations like UNDP and IKEA Foundation to explore innovative finance solutions for humanitarian crises.
  • Greater Cambridge Impact

    Coming Together: The role that social impact investing can play in Cambridge

    AchieveGood, Cambridge City Council, and It Takes A City CLT have been working in partnership to explore ways funding can be secured to improve the lives of local people and build a better and more sustainable city for the future as part of Cambridge City Council’s Our Cambridge programme. This is culminating in the creation of Greater Cambridge Impact.

    A report written by AchieveGood found that Cambridge could benefit from millions of pounds through place-based social impact investment. This can be used for things such as reducing homelessness, building housing or helping to prepare people for employment as well as promoting Net Zero. You can download the report here.

    Despite the prosperity driven by our world-class university and technology sector, parts of our community still face significant issues such as homelessness, health disparities, lack of access to quality education, and barriers to economic opportunity.


    Greater Cambridge Impact aims to tackle these systemic problems head-on. We're building a collaborative approach centred on strategic partnerships, capacity building, and social impact investment. Our goal is to empower local charities, social enterprises, and community initiatives to develop, test, and scale solutions with meaningful and measurable impact.


    Our mission is to strategically intervene in the Greater Cambridge area to measurably improve outcomes for the most vulnerable, address inequality, and transform lives. This will be achieved by collaborating closely with social impact experts, academic thought leaders, the local social sector, and the wider community. We are committed to driving identified and measured outcomes through a multi-stakeholder approach grounded in the principles of inclusive growth, targeted interventions, partnership working, and impactful social economy organisations.
