JLI Learning Hubs


The Joint Learning Initiative on Faith and Local Community

We worked with JLIFLC to create an online space for faith-based organisations to collaborate as they work to overcome poverty.

We drew on our learning from previous work with the Consortium for Street Children to build a site with features that include:

– Hub based system for separating resources, discussions and members into different subject areas

– Resource library with range of filters, advanced search and embedded Google docs

– Extensive theme options to control hub appearance

Income inequality in the UK

Income inequality in the UK

High Pay Centre required a part two to their successful wealth distribution animation, that would develop the style already created and communicate clearly the complex issues around the Pay Gap in the UK today. We became avid supporters of the cause in the process!

It was wonderful to work with Hands Up for our video examining the impact of top pay on income inequality the UK.  The producer and animator were both extremely enthusiastic, competent, talented, and prompt.  It was a smooth process that we enjoyed immensely, and we would wholeheartedly recommend Hands Up to other organizations – Kathryn Nash, High Pay Centre

Peoples Under Threat map


Peoples Under Threat map

‘I just wanted to say a huge thank you from everyone here at MRG for the amazing job you’ve done on the online map. Everyone here thinks it looks great, and we’ve had lots of positive responses from external audiences such as journalists. It seems we’ve increased our media coverage from previous years, and the launch was covered by Al Jazeera English and BBC this morning as well as other media. The map seems to be very popular on social media as well.  

I personally really appreciated your support and expertise throughout the project, particularly in the last week prior to launch. I’ve worked on quite a few web launches, and you’ve honestly been one of the best web agencies I’ve worked with so far!’

Arshad’s story

Arshad’s Story- The Leprosy Mission

‘We commissioned Hands Up to produce a video that would launch in the run-up to World Leprosy Day 2014 and serve as an awareness-raising tool on a more long term basis. This was the first time we had considered animation as a way to educate people about leprosy and our work but we thought it would be particularly effective engaging for a wide audience. The team at Hands Up were fantastic to work with and really understood what we wanted from the video. They worked hard with a tight turnaround time and were always willing to listen and respond quickly to our requirements. The style of animation we ended up with allowed us to portray the reality of leprosy without making it specific to one country – a must as the video is being used in a number of Leprosy Mission offices in other parts of the world. The video received plenty of attention around World Leprosy Day and we’ve had great feedback from supporters and the general public alike.’ – Hannah Mudge, Leprosy Mission

Consortium for Street Children


Consortium for Street Children

Following on from our work on their Online Resource Centre, CSC asked us to work with them on their main site. The site we built is fully responsive, with options that give them a huge amount of flexibility.

“We first commissioned Hands Up to deliver our Global Resource Centre in 2012. With a public resource library and a members-only hub for research and learning, the website achieved on its aim to provide a collaborative, engaging and functional platform. We later turned to Hands Up to design and build a brand new website for the organisation to showcase our work in the fields of advocacy, research and capacity building. The result was a fresh, interactive and confident website that reflects exactly where we are as the world’s leading organisation working to protect street children. Throughout the project Hands Up was constantly on hand to keep us updated and engaged with the process, from design to functionality.” – Chris Mirzai, CSC

Thank you for joining

Thank you for joining Greenpeace

Greenpeace came to us with their brief for an animation aimed at reducing attrition by making a Thank You film, showing each new member what their support means to the organisation, and the planet.

We’ve had great reactions to the film and in fact are going to extend how we use it, to make the most of what is a brilliant animation that everyone truly loves. So thank you all again for all your hard work. It was great working with you – Renuka, Greenpeace
