Work with us
We offer solutions for businesses and foundations that want to make change happen from the grassroots up. Work with us to bring your values to life with inspiring and impactful campaigns that make change happen in local communities.
Types of campaign we run
Run a bespoke campaign
Want to fund community action, volunteer in your local area or build a social movement? We’re here to develop, manage and measure your campaign and generate stories that highlight your impact. Here are some examples of the campaigns we’ve built for a taste of how we help businesses to be a force for good.
Made Local Fund
Made Local is a headline campaign for Carling, with the brand placing community at the core of their purpose and positioning. Carling partnered with Semble to deliver a three year funding activation. In the first year alone, 50 local projects were supported through the Made Local Fund, delivering and promoting high impact community action across the UK.
There’s a nature crisis in the UK. At the same time, children are spending less time outdoors, meaning they’re less likely to care about it. In response, Semble’s grown Backyard Nature - a campaign to get ALL children to spend time enjoying and protecting nature where they live. Iceland Foods Charitable Foundation helped get this movement started. Who will help us take it to the next level?
The Strong Foundations Grant
The Strong Foundations Grant was launched by building and civil engineering company Sir Robert McAlpine in 2020. It aims to support small charities and grassroots organisations dedicated to improving community cohesion and wellbeing. So far 12 projects have been funded in the Manchester area, reaching over 100,000 people. Another 35 projects are expected to be funded across the UK.
Outdoor Classroom Day
A global movement that’s already reached 10 million children, working with over 100,000 educators to increase outdoor play and learning. Semble works with respected environmental and educational NGOs worldwide to deliver locally relevant campaigns. We’ve worked with Unilever to grow this movement. Could you be our next funding partner?
Hello Beautiful Neighbourhood
The Cif Hello Beautiful Neighbourhood campaign brings communities together to clean, beautify and restore pride in neglected local spaces. Community project grantees win funding for their project and work with local volunteers to transform the local area. Semble manages delivery from start to end and amplifies stories of impact to inspire others across the UK.
Wellcome Community Action
Wellcome Community Action was set up in 2016 to support and establish relationships with grassroots projects local to their London office. In 2019, it helped 11 fantastic projects - from painting to gardening, cooking to tech support, the activity mobilised 160 volunteers to deliver 872 hours of their time and achieve 32 project goals for local community projects.

What our partners say about us
Semble goes above and beyond … you are the best agency we have worked with
We’ve partnered with Semble for 4 years now, collaborating to reach those small, grassroots community organisations that truly make a difference. They are a fantastic partner to deliver innovative solutions for corporate volunteering.
We’ve used Semble to help coordinate our Earthkeepers Fund for the last four years, and so far have supported 19 fantastic projects. The team has helped us generate some amazing response rates and buzz around the grant, and the platform has been well-used by the groups to let us know how they’ve used the money.
Without Semble, we simply wouldn’t have been able to organise enough projects for our 600+ employees to volunteer during our annual Global Impact Week.
