One of the projects that Brevity backs, the Buddy Bag Foundation, works to give ‘buddy bags’ to children entering emergency care after fleeing violence at home.

These bags contain essential items, such as toiletries, pyjamas, socks and underwear, as well as some comfort items, such as a book or teddy bear.

Founder and director of Brevity Kaia Vincent said: “Values ​​and being an ethical business have always been the backbone of Brevity.

“We worked on creating the right culture internally at first, so Brevity is genuinely a really good place to work.

“And now we’re turning our attention outwards and thinking about how we can use the business as a force for good.

“B1G1 makes it really simple for businesses to support good causes.

“We link donations to specific activities or business wins, so the more successful we are the more we give.

“That feels right.”
