Economic Change is proud to be a social enterprise
The 15th October is designated as the #BuySocial campaign, organised by Social Enterprise UK.
Buy Social is celebrating the impact social enterprises are having on communities across the UK and around the world. It’s about raising the profile of a different way of doing business – one which puts people, communities and the planet at the heart of how it works.
Economic Change was set up as a Community Interest Company in 2012 as we wanted to support charities with digital solutions at an affordable price and to reinvest our profit into great causes.
In October 2016 we launched Supermums, an initiative to upskill mums to become salesforce professionals. Our mission was to support women returners, champion women into tech and support equality in the workplace.
Four years on we have created a unique model that is more important than ever.
We are able to charities cost effective solutions with the support of Supermum volunteers. So far we have provided 168 charities with £558k of pro-bono support.
At the same time we have upskilled 168 mums as salesforce professionals and help them to successfully secure more resilient, flexible, well-paid job roles within the charity or commercial sector. Many of our mums have gone on to become part-time salesforce administrators for our charity clients, which helps the charities to manage their system long term.
We are so proud of our model and our sister social enterprises. We are operating at a time when unemployment is high and women are disadvantaged, so we are training mums who desperately need a new career choice, whilst at the same time helping charities to get up and running with digital solutions as they embrace a new virtual world and way of working.
We are passionate about our mission and feel privileged to work with clients who feel the same. Here are some lovely client quotes that make us feel warm and fuzzy inside.
“Extremely good value Super Mum Program – amazing value! Economic Change were able to filter out from the massive salesforce range of functionality, the specific bits we needed. We wish to record our grateful thanks to Martin Brockwell, Jyothi Latha & Graham Hopgood for the successful project and being very good to work with. We’re very pleased with our choice of going with Economic Change and are very happy to recommend them.”
“We engaged Economic Change to manage our Salesforce implementation and we have an excellent platform to manage many of our internal and external tasks. We found Economic Change personnel to be very professional and polite in person online and with all email communications. I felt very comfortable with the knowledge and expertise within Economic Change to manage our Salesforce build.
Having considered a number of organisations to complete our Salesforce implementation we are delighted with our choice. Economic Change were very competitive in price and also in their ability to begin the project almost immediately. We would have no hesitation in recommending Economic Change as a Salesforce Implementation Partner. Thank you from everyone at TASC.”

“We appointed Economic Change to help us create a grant-making database from scratch and they were very helpful in guiding us through the design process. We were improving our grant-giving processes simultaneously to this project and wanted to introduce online applications, and Economic Change worked with us to implement this. They were flexible and supportive, and we really valued the fact they understood our organisation and how we would be using the database as a grant-giving charity. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with them again.”
