We believe every business can be a force for good.

Our Purpose


We make it easy for leaders to kickstart their responsible business journeys. Our workshops, masterclasses, webinars and expert mentors will coach you to set up a responsible business programme, and then help you take it to the next level.



We’re supporting small businesses

Heart of the City has been supporting SMEs with responsible business for 20 years. We know from our members that small businesses are facing new challenges now so we’re here to help with issues around furlough, mental health, wellbeing and community support.

So far we’ve worked with 1,000 businesses across London. They’ve gone on to change their businesses for the better with a wide range of activities designed to help people, places and the planet – even winning awards along the way! Watch the video to see how our foundation programme works.
