About the Foundation

At OneFamily we’re passionate about helping families across the generations. Through our OneFamily Foundation we give back to our customers, their loved ones, local communities and the causes they care about.

We do this in a number of ways:

  1. Personal Grants - Up to £1,000 is available to offer a financial helping hand to you, a family member or close friend.
  2. Community Grants - Nominate a project or local cause to receive funding of up to £5,000 to benefit your community. Round 1 of Community Grants is now closed. We hope to announce the dates for Round 2 soon.
  3. Charity Fund – £120,000 to support charity campaigns that help families ease financial strain. Find out who won in the 2017 Charity Fund here.
  4. Community Awards - A chance for community projects to win up to £5,000, £10,000 or £25,000. The 2017 Community Awards have now closed. You can view all the winning projects here.
