Good For Nothing

For the last 5 years we have been developing Good for Nothing (GFN), which brings together skilled creative and commercial talent with social entrepreneurs and change makers to help accelerate their impacts.

GFN is a generosity movement, with no monetary exchange involved. People contribute time, energy and skills for nothing.

Learning new skills, increasing personal wellbeing, connecting up communities, building community capacity and autonomy and exploring another way to the monetary paradigm which dominates every aspect of our lives.

GFN London Participate.001

We are committed to growing the Good for Nothing community, which now exists in 25 city chapters in 6 countries around the world with a core membership of nearly 4000.

We have received fantastic funding support from NESTA's Innovation in Giving fund to help grow the community and scale our impact - and Good for Nothing was listed this year one of Britain's 50 New Radicals by NESTA and The Observer.
