Home-Start UK's Chief Executive, Peter Grigg features on this week's episode of the 'Do More Good' podcast talking about collaboration, keeping the secret of the John Lewis Partnership and the #GiveALittleLove campaign.

The episode is the second of a part of a two-part Christmas special. The first features an in-depth interview with Peter Cross, the the man behind the John Lewis Christmas advert and the ‘Give a Little Love’ campaign where he talks about how they managed to craft the advert over video conferencing, being inspired by kindness, and how charities should appreciate their own value in any partnership.

In this episode Peter Grigg appears with Lindsay Boswell, the Chief Executive of FareShare, the other charity supported by the Give A Little Love campaign.

The episode covers how the relationship came about, what is was like to get local Home-Starts ready for a national campaign without telling them who was involved and Peter's hopes for the campaign's longevity.  It will also give you some insight into Peter Grigg's background, as well as how Home-Start has adapted to the Covid-19 pandemic and the need to build a voice for the needs of families and children. 

The 'Do More Good' podcast is presented by Kenneth Foreman and James Wright and covers a range of topics about the charity sector.
