Below are some of the diverse people and projects we have come across who are using coaching for social impact. We hope they will offer inspiration for some of the many ways that coaching can have an impact on those from all walks of life.

The Humanitarian Coaching

The Humanitarian Coaching Network (HCN) was created to provide humanitarian and development organizations with the means to proactively support the wellbeing of their staff at scale, particularly those serving in the most isolated and complex duty stations.

Living Well

Living Well, a London-based not-for-profit healthcare organisation specialising in supporting marginalised groups, such as ethnic minorities,LGBT+, and those living with HIV, has been a trailblazer and started to provide coaching as part of their services back in 2005. Today, coaching is an integral part of the organisation’s health and wellbeing offer, which also includes counselling, peer support and groupwork.

Norfolk Clubhouse

Norfolk Clubhouse is a charity set up in 2019 working with adults living with mental health difficulties  to connect socially, develop their skills and abilities and to access positive opportunities including further education, training and employment. A coaching approach is used to build confidence, growth and skills. Activities also  include caring for our environment as a whole and taking part in creative activities to achieve this such as upcycling, recycling, community gardening and litter picking.

Young Women's Trust is a feminist organisation working to achieve economic justice for young women. They run Work It Out - a free service that offers support for women aged 18 to 30 to help them with work and life which includes coaching and job application feedback. Young women can have up to 6 free coaching sessions over the phone, WhatsApp or email at a time that works for them with a paid, professional coach.
