About Us
Find out about Neighbourly and the team behind the award-winning giving platform for businesses and charities.

Our mission is to help businesses to be more neighbourly in their local communities

Our story

Neighbourly was founded in 2014 to help businesses deliver meaningful and sustainable community investment, into thousands of locations across the UK and Ireland. We believe that by putting local impact at the heart of responsible business we can create a system that works for everyone.

We’ve grown into an award-winning, market leading CSR platform that serves some of the world's biggest companies and supports thousands of local good causes working to improve lives and habitats in our neighbourhoods.

A Founding B Corp

Neighbourly was one of the UK’s very first B Corporations, meaning we’re a for-profit company certified by the non-profit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social responsibility and environmental performance, accountability and transparency. Being a B Corp underpins our core values and belief that business can be a force for good. Together with our fellow B Corps around the world we are redefining how sustainable communities are built and what success in business means.

The Neighbourly Community Fund

In response to the Covid-19 outbreak in March 2020, we launched the Neighbourly Community Fund to provide microgrants to good causes offering immediate aid to people in crisis. The Fund has supported over 2,000 local charities and community groups working in the heart of our neighbourhoods across the UK and Ireland – from elderly care groups, hospices and children’s services to mental health charities, community centres and foodbanks. In the coming weeks and months the Fund will continue to directly support causes that look after the health and happiness of our communities and help those most in need, through the newly established Neighbourly Foundation (charity 1189514).

We stand for...

Community Investment
Local causes are highly trusted and are in a unique position to address specific social issues and support the well-being of local communities, creating an invisible yet powerful social infrastructure.
Taking Action
We believe that action builds trust. When we take action - big or small - we become part of the community, and we are rewarded with support from those around us.

Business as a Force for Good
We're living in a new world where the interests of our planet and our communities must have equal influence over business decisions as those of shareholders and investors.
