Funding Programme to Help People Move Towards Paid Employment to Open 3 June (UK)

The Society Foundation is an independent registered charity, funded and supported by the executive search firm Society.

Each year, the Foundation offers a small number of micro-grants of up to £2,500 to support people from the following groups move toward paid employment:

  • The recently homeless or vulnerably housed.
  • Ex-offenders.
  • Young people (16-24 years old) not in employment, education or training (NEET).

The funding can be used for:

  • Capacity building activities, including IT infrastructure and equipment.
  • Staff training and development
  • External consultancy/support.

The funding aims to play a transformative role by increasing the sustainability and effectiveness of organisations that are doing really vital work.

Applications are accepted from UK registered charities, Charitable Incorporated Organisations (CIO) or Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisations (SCIO) and organisations with a governing document showing a clear charitable aim/purpose as defined by the Charity Commission for England and Wales.

Applicants must have a turnover under £500,000 per annum.

The 2024 application window opens on 3 June and closes at midday on 8 July 2024.
