We campaign with humility, integrity and passion for the causes we work on

Small Axe is a not-for-profit with one goal:

Small Axe is a not-for-profit with one goal: to create movements that are progressive, hopeful and powerful, to inspire people to act on the most pressing issues of our time. We bring together bold creative, communications and organising to run integrated end-to-end campaigns.

We campaign with humility, integrity and passion for the causes we work on; whether hired by clients, collaborating with partners, or launching our own.

We’re proud that our work has played a crucial role in three General Elections.

We don’t work with corporations, we don’t do CSR and we don’t extract profit from the movement. We’ve been a worker co-operative from the beginning.

We believe in the power of diversity of thought, life experience, opinions, culture and ideas. We don’t pretend to be free from bias and groupthink, but work hard to overcome this.

We’ve all come to Small Axe through different routes, applied and adapted ourselves and our skills to the job. Inspired by people like Saul Alinsky, Ella Baker and Marshall Ganz, obsessed with grassroots campaigners moving mountains and progressive candidates overturning the odds around the world.

We work hard with a sincere belief that a small group of thoughtful and committed people can change the world. That’s why we’re called Small Axe:

If you are the big tree,  Let me tell you that: we are the small axe,  Sharpened ready ready to cut you down, (well sharp)
