OUR APPROACH

We seek out and work alongside high potential groups or individuals who have personal experience of injustice, to campaign on some of the most urgent social issues of our time. That’s because we believe people with direct experience should be at the heart of leading change.

The BREAKTHROUGH Experience is unique:

1
We’ve developed a pioneering five-stage campaign lifecycle, which we coach and guide people through. This means you’ll have the skills, knowledge and support every step of the way.

SKILLS

2
Together, we create a strategy to win – combining digital mobilisation, building your movement, influencing decision-makers and making waves in the press. We have a unique combination of experience and knowledge, allowing us to craft bespoke strategies that drive impact.

STRATEGY

3
We connect you to an unparalleled network of activists, lawyers, creatives, journalists and advisors – to give you world-class advice and support. You’ll have access to teammates with exceptional talent.
