Community

Community is the bond which brings people together, lifts them up, and gives them a sense of purpose and belonging in an uncertain world. Nurturing a fairer, more resilient and more cohesive society starts with community.

The Foundation supports local, community-based solutions to engrained social problems. We target our funding towards organisations and initiatives that promote opportunity in the most disadvantaged communities in the UK and abroad – from local services for vulnerable young people, to community-based mental health initiatives and charitable projects aimed at countering discrimination against disenfranchised groups.

The Foundation is a major donor to the Berkshire Youth Trust, which provides youth support services to help vulnerable young people make successful transitions to adulthood. It supports the Charlie Miller Football Academy in Glasgow and of course founded and fully funds BoxWise, which now operates over 30 locations across the U.K. and has recently moved into South Africa and Ireland.

Nick has written on community themes for outlets such as Reaction and City A.M.
