To bring about social benefits through changes in economic and financial systems
See website for the next deadline
The Friends Provident Foundation ‘Building Resilient Economies’ programme aims to contribute to a more resilient, fairer and sustainable economic system. It is particularly concerned with the impact of economic systems on the most vulnerable.
Applicants should address one of the two programme outcomes:
Projects should find innovative ways of changing financial systems – eg. regulations and policies on lending, pensions etc. – to lessen the negative impact they can have on vulnerable people
Local economic resilience
Projects should develop partnerships to share good practice on the technologies and approaches that assist localities to create economic growth and retain its value. This includes community assets, volunteering, collective purchasing and other small-scale initiatives that help people to contribute to the local economy in flexible, innovative ways.
Requests can be made for up to £200,000 to cover capital or revenue funding for project or core costs. Activity must be charitable and for the public benefit.
Outline applications are considered at quarterly meetings.
