Big Give Christmas Challenge 2023

Between midday 28th November – midday 5th December the Christmas Challenge will be live. Visit our campaign page Transforming the lives of unemployed women ( and hit the donate button. Every donation, no matter the size, will be doubled.

The Big Give Christmas Challenge is the UK’s biggest match-funded campaign. For seven days, the challenge offers supporters the opportunity to double their donations — and, in doing so, make an extraordinary difference to the vital work of Smart Works Birmingham.

One donation, twice the impact

It’s a simple idea- when you donate through this Big Give campaign, we ask funders (philanthropists, foundations or corporates) to match that donation. So £50 from a member of the public becomes £100 for Smart Works Birmingham.

With this funding we aim to increase the number of women we support to 800 in 2023-2024. Smart Works Birmingham helps women in need to secure employment, gain financial independence and transform their lives. Last year, we supported 576 women; 75% got the job within a month and over 95% found that visiting Smart Works improved their confidence. We know there are more women who need our help.
