Our work helps people and institutions contribute to a more inclusive, open and prosperous world to bring about positive change in their societies.

Through our programmes developed in partnership with local and international organisations we address issues such as social inclusion, accountability, entrepreneurship and active citizenship. Using our deep understanding of local contexts and the trust earned through long-standing commitment, we enable young people, communities and governments to make positive change for the benefit of all.

We have tailored our projects within Social Enterprise and Sports for development of young people in India.

Social Enterprise: facilitating growth of social economy

The UK, with its international reputation in social enterprise, offers huge potential for emerging and large economies like India to explore newer and innovative approaches to economic and social development.

We combine and facilitate sharing of knowledge, experience best practices in the UK with Indian interlocutors to design programmes and trainings to help and promote young social entrepreneurs to turn their ideas into social enterprises by providing them necessary skills and resources. We also develop and connect UK expertise with Indian Social Entrepreneurs to scale up their work through training, mentoring, consultancy, and access to investment.

Premier Skills: Sports for Development

Premier Skills is a global collaborative project of the English Premier League, UK and the British Council.  Part of the Premier League’s corporate social responsibility ambitions, the project uses football as a tool to help develop both community coaching and English language skills. Its courses are designed to train aspiring sports coaches and youth leaders to return to their own communities and enhance impact of their existing football sessions, whilst also developing their leadership and English language communication skills for a greater understanding of the role football can play in tackling social issues.
