The acquisition of Hopscotch also brings to WE extensive expertise in connecting with young people and youth audiences, in developing educational programmes, working with government groups, and brands engaging with young audiences in new ways. Moving forward, Hopscotch Consulting will be known as “Hopscotch, a WE Communications Company”.
Headquartered in central London with a team of 22, Hopscotch has differentiated itself through a focus on social impact and behaviour change. With emphasis on education programmes addressing issues including employability and skills development, social mobility, climate change and public health, Hopscotch’s work has won multiple awards, including The UK Public Sector Awards and The Corporate Engagement Awards.
“The acquisition of Hopscotch comes at an exciting time for WE, already one of the fastest growing agencies in the UK,” Said Ruth Allchurch, WE Managing Director, UK. “Hopscotch complements and delivers on WE’s growth strategy, centred on deliberate choices around people, culture and clients. Alongside our tech practice for which WE is already well-known in the UK, the Hopscotch acquisition bolsters our burgeoning Scientific Engagement and Health practice led by Ben Fisher, as well as our growing corporate reputation and brand purpose practice in the UK, led by Kemi Akindele.”
