AboutThe power of Common Change is found in its people, through the collective giving groups they form together.
From all over the UK, people are coming together to form Common Change Groups, challenging economic inequality and putting the power of change into their own hands!
The concept that “Together there is enough” features in many scholarly and religious teachings and it is this practice, of putting human well-being at the centre of our economics, that is the foundation of Common Change.
Common Change Collective Giving is achieved when groups of people pool their resources by making regular deposits to a common fund. Common Change provides the platform that enables people to do this, helping them to ensure their community’s well being and provide support when it’s needed most.
We all know how unpredictable life can be and how any of us can be hit by crisis at any time, perhaps the loss of a job or a sudden illness or accident. It’s in times like these, when we often rely on the kindness of our friends or family to get us through, but not everyone has that good fortune.
