Aureus Social Ventures Ltd (commonly known as Aureus) is a socially-driven business which provides expert help to the charitable and not-for-profit sectors, to individuals and businesses wishing to achieve social good in sustainable and satisfying ways.
We work with charities, social enterprises, sports bodies and schools to help them deliver outstanding governance, high-impact, innovative programmes and to generate the funds they need.
We also work with individuals and private sector partners wanting to achieve social good through philanthropy, corporate giving and socially-motivated commercial ventures, while we also develop and implement our own socially-driven projects.
