Member Profile: Shared Interest


Shared Interest is an ethical investment organisation that uses money from people living in the UK to lend to Fair Trade businesses across the globe. With our head office in Newcastle upon Tyne, our 9,000 investors are based throughout the UK. This is why our team of ambassadors is crucial in reaching potential investors who may not have heard of Shared Interest before.

Word of mouth continues to be one of the most powerful forms of promoting the organisation, and our ambassadors do a fantastic job of telling people in their community how we provide finance to farmers and handcraft makers in the developing world. However, our ambassadors are always seeking new opportunities to speak to groups, run stalls at elated events and make connections with local contacts.

If you would like to invite a Shared Interest ambassador to your event or make contact with them, please do not hesitate to get in touch. We have been recently working on how to make our application process more streamlined and have created an online application form as part of this. We launched the form at the beginning of Fairtrade Fortnight with a short animation explaining our business model in a creative and interactive way. Click here to watch it.

If you are inspired by our animation and the work that we do, please do not hesitate to get in touch with our Engagement Manager, Sally Reith on 07912 941806 or at
