What Drives Us

We believe no-one should struggle alone. We want to see a world where anyone facing crisis can get help when needed, regardless of their personal circumstances.

Did you know 11.8 million Brits struggle to find support?

Because of this, two in five will delay or give up looking. Our mission is to change that by working with companies looking for innovative ways to support their customers or employees.

A proven solution

Scaling on early social successes

Our sister site mypickle.org is our prototype site which helps the general public to find support. The site directly connected over 3200 people to support in it's first year (2021).

As a volunteer-driven and award-winning initiative, My Pickle has proven the importance of sharing high quality, reliable information on support services resources.

Combatting Barriers To Support

All of our activities and plans seek to combat common barriers to support that particularly impact the poorest and most vulnerable in society.

Not being able to access support can have significant consequences to an individual’s health, wellbeing, prosperity and security.

As an independent not-for-profit we want to collaborate and help to build a Support Network that is there to help anyone, anytime.
