Big Change is a non profit organisation established to get vulnerable people on the streets of Leeds the help they need. 

To collaborate, co-ordinate and provide better support for people experiencing homelessness, and make it easier for citizens and businesses to do something to help.

Many small, co-ordinated actions add up to a big difference and help to make a big change.

Squire Patton Bogg's Leeds office is supporting Big Change as its charity of the year for 2019!

Event details

Big Change Fund - Paddle the Pennines

Between 23rd and 28th June, staff from the Leeds office of Squire Patton Boggs will be taking it turns to paddle from Manchester to Leeds along the historic waterways that cross the Pennines. 

We are doing this to raise money for Big Change. This is a brilliant organisation that helps homeless people in Leeds by coordinating support provided by a range of fantastic groups.
