PHF makes grants to organisations which aim to maximise opportunities for individuals to experience a full quality of life, both now and in the future. In particular we are concerned with children and young people, and others who are disadvantaged.

We prefer to support work which others may find hard to fund, perhaps because it breaks new ground, is too risky or is unpopular. We also take initiatives ourselves where new thinking is required or where we believe there are important unexplored opportunities.

We are interested in putting into practice new ideas that will achieve better outcomes and which are likely to lead to significant and long-term impact.

For us, innovation can be:

– Radical: Researching, developing and implementing completely new ideas
– Incremental: Adapting existing ideas, possibly by applying them in new contexts

We want our grants to enable change at three levels:

– Individuals and communities
– Policy and practice

We are particularly interested in work that enables participants to shape the direction and delivery of the work.

We will only accept applications from formally constituted organisations in England, Wales, Northern Ireland, Scotland and India.

Applications should be completed and submitted via the online system on the PHF website.
