PARTNERING TO STRENGHTEN PUBLIC SERVICE INNOVATION

December 16th, 2020

Social Business Trust is proud to announce Catch22 as the newest addition to our portfolio.

Catch22 designs and delivers services that build resilience and aspiration in people and communities. SBT will support Catch22 to help achieve their ambition of becoming the engine room of public service innovation in the UK.

Catch22 believes everyone needs the same three things to thrive. People, Place, Purpose, and know that access to these three basic pillars are fundamental to transforming lives and communities. All Catch22 services deliver at least one (and often all three) of these outcomes.

“With Social Business Trust’s support, we can accelerate our transformation into a great organisation: streamlined and focussed on its impact and reform vision. Without us being lean, efficient and effective, we cannot contribute to broader system reform. We need to be even better at what we do, evidence it better, win greater market share and build a stronger case for change in the spaces in which we operate. We want to be in the best shape to support those most vulnerable as we rebuild. With Social Business Trust, Catch22 is stronger.”

– Chris Wright, Chief Executive, Catch22

“It has been a great experience working with the SBT/Catch22 team over the last 3 months and it’s truly fantastic they have now secured a place on the portfolio. What has impressed me the most is how the team has come together to make this a reality. I have gained so much from spending time with Chris and Mat from Catch22 and really getting an appreciation of the services they deliver to the most vulnerable in society. I am grateful to be part of the team as we start on the next leg of this amazing journey, which commences in January 2021.

– Jim Godman, Head of Software Solutions at Thomson Reuters and Investment Director, Catch22

“We are so excited to welcome Catch22 to the portfolio. We’ve seen how well the teams have worked together already and look forward to helping Catch22 grow their impact and achieve even more.”

– Adele Blakebrough MBE, CEO Social Business Trust
