Investing in A Fairer Future


To secure A Fairer Future, we offer social investment to organisations who are working to address systemic injustice and inequity.

Across our funding, we commit to investing into organisations led by communities experiencing racial inequity, as well as building community wealth. We are particularly interested in supporting work that also contributes to our other priorities in Creative, Confident Communities and Our Natural World.

Think for the Future

Children and young people's rights

We want to support:

  • The expansion of impact-focused models that address market failure in early years education and children’s care.
  • Mission-locked organisations who are improving outcomes for young people at risk of school exclusion or in contact with the care or youth justice system, along with earlier support for disabled young people and those with special educational needs.
  • The provision of high-quality, person-centred, housing for children and young people or leaving care, and those in contact with or leaving the youth justice system.

Gender justice, Migrant justice and Racial justice

We want to support:

  • The provision of high-quality, safe, affordable housing to reduce gender-based violence, improve outcomes for migrants, or those in contact with or leaving the youth justice system.
  • Equity for mission-locked ventures and enterprises led by and supporting people with experience of racial inequity; women; transgender and non-binary people; and migrants, refugees and asylum seekers.
