Who We Are

A Collective of Community Innovators

We are a collective of community innovators, joined together to research and find solutions to social and environmental issues which drive low mood and mental ill health.

We launch and collaborate on projects to deliver the best joined up solutions and ensure we are going to make a difference to the community.

We work with the community, government, private and third sector to coordinate new projects on-island to make a positive impact and inspire change.

Thrive is an Incorporated Association with the Royal Court of Jersey and a registered NPO but not a registered charity.

Founded in 2018

We were founded to bring a smarter view for the community and to contribute to creating a happy island which is a concept that is growing globally.

In 2019, we hosted its first event in partnership with the Government of Jersey, covering suicide and addiction, from which its future vision was developed.

Thrive became an Incorporated Association in 2020.
