What we do

Our experts have changed the world with campaigns that have made a difference.

Our Approach

Want to change the world? Speak to us.

89up is Europe’s foremost agency running campaigns for charities, NGOs, and the not-for-profit sector. We will work with you to build a campaign strategy that takes your mission and turns it into real world change. Our award-winng experts have worked on some of the world’s most pressing issues – from climate change to LGBTi rights. We’ve defended press freedom and helped tackle the shortage of blood donors for young cancer patients.

Our approach is tailored to your needs and the outcomes you want to achieve. Whether it is a long-term campaign for legislative change through lobbying the right MPs, or a public-awareness exercise to build public consent for your cause and the profile of your organisation - we’re here to help.

We understand the constraints and sensitivities of NGO work.  Our products and services are uniquely developed to suit your theory of change and how you are working to solve social problems.

We told the government of citizens’ concerns that judges, not politicians, should have the power to decide when it is fair for the state to monitor citizens’ communications. We produced a hard-hitting public awareness campaign with shareable social media content and worked with fellow agencies to place billboards next to major roads in London to warn the public of the dangers ahead:
