Paul Hamlyn Foundation - Ideas and Pioneers Fund
The Paul Hamlyn Foundation's Ideas and Pioneers Fund supports people with unusual or radical ideas to improve the life chances and opportunities of people in the UK.
The Foundation seeks to support ideas that help people overcome disadvantage and lack of opportunity, so that they can realise their potential and enjoy fulfilling and creative lives. It wants to work with people whose ideas are in the early stages of development and will fund work to enable you to develop the idea from concept to set-up: this may include problem definition and analysis, scoping, exploratory work, and prototyping. The Foundation prefers to be the first and main funder to support an idea and welcome applications from people who have not received grant funding before.
