Together,

we can change these statistics.

Corporate social responsibility creates a competitive advantage in local business,
raises brand awareness and helps you develop trust with shareholders, customers andemployees. Demonstrating that companies, customers and communities can thrive
together is a powerful advantage.

Supporting The Social Society increases your businesses positive
public image especially within the local Brighton community and longer term nationally.
The sense of social responsibility is appealing to not only future employees but
customers alike. Brighton businesses that are ethical and support charitable purposes
are ultimately widely appreciated and respected.

As well as philanthropic corporate social responsibility, by enrolling your team up to our membership you are investing in them as individuals. The Social Society actively encourages the growth of individuals communities, relationships and positive health and wellbeing.

We've canned the tick box approach to CSR

Authenticity is what people want to see at the heart of every business. Rather than the standard tick box approach to CSR, our model exists in the workplace, making it easier for you to giveback, by integrating skill sharing, charitable support and raising funds.

By 2025, Millennials will make up 75% of the workforce and they want their work to have meaning, feeling valued for doing more than just driving revenue. Over half of the adult population of Brighton and Hove volunteer at least once a year donating approximately 86,000 hours per week.


We want local businesses to be part of these figures and help local charities continue to grow, whilst being sustainable. CSR shouldn’t be seen as a ‘tick box’ approach to doing your bit as a business, but a reflection of the values that you stand for.

By working together we can help support our local economy and charitable sector with skill sharing, time, expertise and funding, giving you something worthwhile to tell your clients and community about. You can have fun whilst doing it too.
