Operating both locally and internationally, we address issues impacting on the marginalised, those affected by human rights abuses, exploitation, forced labour and homelessness.

Sustainable Giving

The Big Umbrella Foundation is creating a sustainable Social Enterprise model to empower people within the community. TBU will set the benchmark in social economic models, challenging and changing the way “Charity” is perceived.

By building social equity, we aim to bring about lasting change within the Not For Profit Sector through the development of our charitable programs making them sustainable and profitable.

We provide an experience that promotes awareness and gives us the ability to contribute back to local communities whilst creating a new way of doing business together. 

Helping Communities Grow

The Big Umbrella is continuing to work with the next generation of Social Entrepreneurs through inviting socially conscious businesses to experience the ReaL MeaL and Urban Seed Kitchens program. This is a team building experience for their staff and clients which can assist individuals with professional development, leadership skills and social consciousness.
