The vision - A just society in which everyone, especially young people, can realise their full potential and enjoy fulfilling and creative lives.
The mission - To be an effective and independent funder, using all our resources to create opportunities and support social change. We partner with inspiring organisations and individuals to make sure that people facing disadvantage are at the heart of leading change and designing solutions to overcome inequality.
We cannot directly fund unincorporated groups when they are not registered charities, and some of our Funds have specific requirements - for instance the Youth Fund cannot accept applications from newly registered organisations that have yet to produce independently audited accounts. Please check the Fund you are applying to for any restrictions.
What we Fund;
- Nurturing Ideas & People
- Arts Access & Participation
- Education & Learning Through The Arts
- Investing in Young People
- Migration & Integration
