Happy signs Covenant to support young
people to live independent lives


Posted on: 14th Sept. 2022

We’re happy to announce that we’ve signed the Care Leaver Covenant, the nationwide initiative that supports 16-25 year olds who are leaving the care system, helping them to live independent lives.

In July 2016, the Government published “Keep on Caring” a major policy document to support young people from care to independence. A key commitment in the paper was a strategic pledge to a Care Leaver Covenant.

Already supported by national organisations including John Lewis, Tesco, Amazon and now Happy Creative, the Covenant is a promise made by companies to commit to provide additional and specialist support for those leaving care than that provided statutorily by local authorities.

There are 5 key areas of expertise providing “opportunities” for care leavers, and over 2000 opportunities have already been created covering employment, training and holistic support.

Happy has made a promise of one our great strengths … to provide one-to-one online mentoring. We will be helping care leavers on an individual basis with employment, entrepreneurship and behind the scenes insights into marketing and branding. It’s all part of our purpose to spread happiness and support our local communities.

On signing the Covenant, Chief Happy, Karen Lambert said “The wellbeing of our society matters to us, we recognise that the wellbeing of our business cannot be separated from the wellbeing of ourselves and our society. We give back our time, skills and money to benefit those in our communities. To be able to help a young person gain more confidence, sharing tips, and insights into how a marketing and branding agency works feels like a very aligned way to give back. The value of one-to-one mentoring at any age is powerful, and we’re delighted to support young people starting out in their career”

Design & Brand Building

Marketing is bit like those huge, swirling flocks of starlings you see from time to time. Individually your brochure, email, ad, meme or gif may not change the world.

But when you join them together and ensure they’re all heading in the same direction, you have the power to stop people in their tracks.

We design communications that help build a consistent brand and convert more leads to sales.

Yet websites are never ‘done’. They need to keep evolving to keep pace with your customers’ expectations, so we’ll be with you for the long haul to keep tweaking, refining and growing your site – and to deliver the PPC campaigns that help drive traffic towards it.

Because when your website keeps working to understand and speak to your audience, you’ve got more chance of converting.
