‘Retail with impact’

We work in an impactful sector! Our #morethanashop campaign highlighted many areas charity retail touches, such as your cause, the environment, communities and more. We have decided to focus on the impact of charity retail. We aim to impart knowledge and expertise for you to either begin an impact journey in one of our focus session streams or improve a journey already started channelling your impact to make positive change.

The focus session streams

  • Impact on your people
  • Impact on sustainability
  • Impact on the public
  • Impact on ecommerce

  • Impact on high streets
  • Impact on profit
  • Impact on strategy
