Our Values

We believe the world needs people who are driven to make society better, and that these people need to be supported to be at their best and to thrive. We work in-line with our values to support people and teams to be resilient, resourced and inspired. 


We love to learn, to reflect and generate insight, to enable growth


We believe people are at their best when they can be their true selves and are aligned with their values, preferences and motivations


We are passionate about people and creating meaningful connection with others


We aim to reach our own potential, and to help identify and enable potential within others


We strive to create positive impact through all our work, believing that collectively small actions can lead to great things

We are particularly passionate about the critical role small charities, social enterprises, and women who are/aspire to be leaders play, in making our communities better. People for Purpose aims to support them through providing funded development opportunities. When you choose to buy our services, you help create these funded opportunities for people who would otherwise miss out.

“The course fell at a fantastic time for me as I transitioned to a new post. It really highlighted to me what I needed in terms of support and leadership -and made me reflect on my own style of leadership and how I relate to others. It was a real boost to confidence and self-esteem and it was so reassuring to hear everyone in the room faced many of the same challenges and that we are all human and can have wobbles of self-confidence!”

Our Team

Our founders Claire Abbs, Laura Jones and Faye Anderson originally connected when working within the Norfolk voluntary sector. Many years of conversations and intrigue into how our motivations and preferences influence us and others, led to more formal collaboration and action.

The People for Purpose team works with an incredible network of coaches, trainers, and inspiring people to bring opportunities to individuals, teams and organisations.
