We believe in social mobility.
And we’re putting our money where our mouth is.
When it comes to making real change, talk is cheap. People need more than just kind words to help them achieve their goals.
That’s why we’re providing funding to build the skills and knowledge necessary to aid social mobility. With our three streams of funding—Learner Grants, Action Research Grants, and Resource and Facilities Grants—learners, staff and education providers can receive funding for the things they need to realise meaningful change.
Who qualifies for funding?
