Our Values

We are known for being Altruistic

First things first: First Give wouldn’t be First Give if it didn’t revolve around social action. So much of our world needs radical change, and we aim to light the spark of transformation in local communities through
the initiative of young people.

We are known for being Inspiring

We’re initiators. Instigators. We start something and get the ball rolling. Our role is to inspire change in and through others– a first step towards a more selfless lifestyle.

We are known for being Empowering

Young people aren’t just the future, they’re the present. They’re tenacious, opinionated
and energetic. We believe in their ability to make meaningful and consequential difference in their communities, and we want to be the ones to empower, support and celebrate their achievements.

We are known for being Collaborative

Our whole model depends on teamwork. The programme is designed and tested by different people to those who deliver and facilitate it. Our relationships with schools gives us access to their students, and it’s through their teamwork with their peers and their connection with charities already active in their community that they can achieve more.

We are known for being Professional

First Give are experienced, personal and dependable. We engage with a wide range of people and it is essential that we are approachable and carry a professional appearance to build trust within these relationships
