Who we are

WE ARE CHANGE MAKERS – PROMOTING PUBLIC HEALTH AND CHALLENGING SOCIAL INEQUALITY

We deliver award-winning research, brands and campaigns that change lives – for good. We’re extremely experienced in NHS, health & youth communications – and our consultants have worked on some of the UK’s most successful UK public health campaigns - from ’5 a day’ & ‘Talk to Frank’  to ‘Change 4 Life.’ Our name is our philosophy – we work tirelessly with your target audience to design and road-test each and every campaign. But what makes us really unique is our hugely talented & experienced team of consultants who come from a wealth of backgrounds. It’s this melting pot of experience and ideas that makes our work so effective.
