Greater Change - Operations Manager
In the last 2 years Greater Change has grown into a leading social enterprise, building technology that helps people leave homelessness behind for good. So far, we've supported over 200 people experiencing homelessness across Oxfordshire, London, West Sussex and Essex. In 2019 we supported 25 people, in 2020 we supported 136 people, this year we are on track to support 350 people. Of these people, so far, over ⅔ have left homelessness behind for good.
We’ve attracted grant funding and social investment from some of the biggest names in the sector. Greater Change was incubated by one of the UK’s most respected charities, Aspire Oxfordshire, (Guardian Charity of the year 2014) as well as Oxford University Innovation. GC has received extensive press coverage including on certain days being in the most read Guardian articles and the most watched BBC video.
