Culture

The culture is the beating heart of your organisation. We work with many different groups to identify what makes them special. We tell stories that connect people with who they are and find purpose in their daily activities. 

People

Connecting you with your people.

Community

Connecting you with your community. Turning passion into deliverable plans and adding value to people and communities is what we are all about. 

Purpose

Connecting you with your purpose. Gone are the days where making profit and caring for people are at odds. Finding ways to maximise the impact of your business that are good for people and great for your bottom line is the heart of why we do what we do. 

Big Solutions

At Arena we passionately believe that where there are big challenges in society we need big solutions. We think those solutions are better delivered in partnership.

Doing social good is not the preserve of the good-hearted and charity-minded few. It is the responsibility of all of us to find ways of being that add value to the lives of people and communities around us. We work with businesses and community groups to release the life changing potential of those partnerships.

Making a lasting difference

Do, Be, Do, Be, Do

We think doing and thinking are important. Our directors and associates at Arena have all worked for many years in roles which have been about delivering maximum social value.

With a diverse range of backgrounds we don’t always get on, we think, we debate but more than all that – we do. We are practitioners not advisors and we love making a difference, not just talking about it.

We would love to think and work with you

We do great work – here are the building blocks

Don’t just take our word for it

Sarah is a deeply articulate and tenacious business professional who is prepared to ask difficult questions to get results. She has considerable business acumen, is a good, lateral thinker and possesses a compassionate nature.

Wayne Bowser, Harrats

Gary has a depth of knowledge and understanding of the Third Sector in Britain that is second to none. Working with him is an inspiring experience.

Maff Potts, PeopleCan

Sarah is able to communicate at all levels from the homeless to the Prime Minister and senior Cabinet Ministers who have all realised she is a lady worth listening to. A combination of understanding social need and the experience of starting up and growing a company through the recession means she has a combination of skills that would be valuable in many situations!
