Supporting global social change
WildHearts Group transform lives through improved social mobility and empowering individuals to create better futures.
Social value is woven into the Team SCAPE ethos and an integral part of how we work with our clients, partners and affiliates. We are committed to the development and delivery of positive socio-economic community outcomes.
WildHearts offer a wide range of office equipment from stationery to clothing with 100 per cent of their profits donated to the WildHearts Foundation. The WildHearts Foundation helps to improve social mobility in the UK, raising young people's aspirations and supporting those from poorer backgrounds with their employment journey.
They are transforming lives through their multi-award winning entrepreneurial education programme, which has benefited 5,625 young people in more than 180 schools.
We actively seek to engage with social enterprises as a way of supporting and giving back to communities both locally and overseas. WildHearts' values demonstrate that business can be a force for good and a vehicle for improving social mobility whilst championing sustainable positive change.

WildHearts also work on a global level to address gender inequality and discrimination in the developing world. Through an initiative called StartHer, they help women and girls find ways and means to earn a better future for themselves and their families.
To date, WildHearts have funded micro-finance programmes in over 40 countries enabling predominantly women to start-up and grow micro-businesses; empowering them to work their own way out of poverty and improve their quality of life. In 2017 alone, they funded over 13,000 micro-loans and transformed 60,000 lives.
We are proud to support this innovative social enterprise and the pivotal role they play in addressing key societal issues in a sensitive but sustainable way. WildHearts' vision and values align closely with our own and together we are joining the movement for positive social change.
