HELPING IMPROVE CHILDRENS' LIVES IN THE UK

Who we are

We are the leading independent funder for children and young people in the UK.

We believe that every child and young person deserves the opportunity to thrive and be the best they can be. Through our grantmaking and wider work, we aim to create lasting, positive change across the UK for the children and young people who need us most.

The people and organisations we fund will:

  • Work in the heart of their communities, particularly in times of crisis.
  • Put children and young people at the centre of everything they do, from design to delivery.
  • Address the challenges the children and young people face, build their skills and resilience, empower them and extend their choices in life.
  • Be keen to keep learning about their work so that their ability to make a difference in children and young people’s lives can keep on improving.
