Partnership to strengthen public service innovation

Catch22 has become the newest addition to the Social Business Trust's portfolio. SBT will support us to achieve our ambition of becoming the engine room of public service innovation in the UK.

Chris Wright, Chief Executive of Catch22, said:

With Social Business Trust 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 the country rebuilds. With Social Business Trust, Catch22 is stronger.

Jim Godman, Head of Software Solutions at Thomson Reuters and Investment Director on the project, said:

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 & Mat from Catch22 and really getting an appreciation of the services they deliver to the most vulnerable in society and 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.

Adele Blakebrough MBE, CEO Social Business Trust, said:

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.
