Our impact

We see a future where enterprising people are transforming our world for good.

To achieve this future we find people with bold solutions to today's challenges. Through funding and support, we help them to realise their potential and create lasting change. We call these people social entrepreneurs.

Backed to grow

Working in deprived areas

We shine a light on the potential of local communities and leaders to grow sustainable solutions to social challenges. That’s why a quarter of the amount we invested in social entrepreneurs was spent in UK’s most deprived areas.
