Confidence counts.

Supporting 1000+ women working in the voluntary sector taught us that confidence is a competitive advantage for charities. It will help you stand out, attract volunteers, funders and inspire trust - all of which are essential for building a successful and impactful charity.

We can't wait to support you and your teams.

When you enroll your cohorts, you'll receive a customised report packed with data-driven insights. We take the time to personally meet with each charity leader, discussing the report and offering our expert recommendations.
The UPFRONT Charity Bond is an exhilarating six-week online experience where you learn to build your confidence and the confidence of the women around you. It all happens LIVE alongside hundreds of curious women from all over the world.

The Bond will impact your organisation at an individual and team level. Confidence is an incredibly powerful force in the charity sector. It will help you stand out, attract volunteers, funders and inspire trust - all of which are essential for building a successful and impactful charity.

I promise three outcomes: you'll start to love the thing that scares you, you'll find your people, and 10x your confidence.

What Charity Leaders say

Ciara Commins
Quotation marks
Attending the Bond as an organisation was a highly valuable experience. The content and the learning experience is rich and the learnings are tangible. The bonding experience between colleagues, teams, departments and our partner organisations was profound. We're still meeting regularly to talk about our learnings and ourown confidence journeys. The Charity Bond is a significant opportunity for our sector - let's seize it.

I've been truly inspired by the demand for the Bond and the impact Bond 7 has had on our women and wider teams. UPFRONT's work is clearly addressing the suppression of women's confidence that's present in every sector and the Charity sector is no different. To be the change we need, we must equip all of our women to grow, develop and challenge the status quo and the Bond is a brilliant way to do this. Investing in the Charity Bond is a great opportunity for women staff and volunteers, it tells them that their voice really does matter and that they have a supportive community who are right there with them.

I was amazed by the incredible demand for Bond 7. It's inspiring to see the demand among women for what UPFRONT has to offer. The course's flexibility was a game-changer for us, and the feedback we've received has been very positive. The Charity Bond opportunity is exciting for our sector.

The Bond is empowering women to take charge of their roles and responsibilities in a way that truly makes a difference. Bond 7 has truly been a transformative experience for us, giving us the skills and confidence to break through barriers and maintain self-belief. We are now better equipped to lead ourselves and each other, advocate for change, and champion the causes we exist to serve. The Bond is a game-changer for women in the charity sector, and I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone looking to advance their career and make a lasting impact in the charity sector.
