As the project aims to promote and encourage cross sector collaboration we have been careful to ensure that our list of partners reflects this. We are grateful to have had input from the following organisations:

Project Managers


Logistics / learning / partnerships

"I'm extremely excited to work with young inspirational people and organisations who are looking to push the boundaries of the way community and enterprise can work together. I believe that business, social action and community can collectively create solutions to many of the issues we face in society, and young people are a key part of this."

Gemma has spent the last 5 years working in social enterprise at the British Council and has a special interest in this sector overseas. Alongside Drivers for Change, she is working to set up a social enterprise to empower women through fitness.


Communications / media / recruitment

"After I had the amazing opportunity to travel to India and take part in Jagriti Yatra, I jumped at the chance to help bring a similar project to the UK. It's unquestionable that society will be more equal if young people have more opportunities to design and deliver new ways of tackling social challenges. I hope that Drivers for Change will give a platform to some ground-breaking, youth-led, big ideas."

Since graduating with a degree in social policy in 2009 Leonie has worked in travel and social enterprise, and lived abroad in France and Mexico. Alongside working on Drivers for Change she is putting her Spanish language skills to the test and supporting the set-up of a social enterprise in Colombia.
