The OneFamily Foundation

Giving our customers the opportunity to make a positive impact to their communities and the people that matter to them.

What is the OneFamily Foundation?

OneFamily is a customer-owned business, which means we’re able to reinvest our profits for the benefit of our customers, rather than shareholders.

Our customers can apply for a Young Person's Education Grant to help a young person with their education costs. T&Cs apply.

Find out more about how we're committed to inspiring better futures through the way we run our business and invest your money.

Since 2015 we've:

  • Awarded over £4m to our customers and their communities
  • Supported over 350 charities and community groups
  • Helped over 3,000 people through our individual grants

Our OneFamily Foundation Grants

If you want to help someone aged 15-19 with the cost of their education or training, you can nominate them for a Young Person’s Education Grant.

Don’t forget, you need to be a OneFamily customer with an active policy to apply for a Young Person’s Education Grant.


Young Person's Education Grant

A little bit of help towards meeting the essential costs of education and training for young people aged 15-19.

The costs of further education and training can be a barrier to many young people and their families. This is why we offer OneFamily customers the opportunity to apply for a Young Person's Education Grant of up to £500 to help meet these costs, when they would otherwise struggle without financial assistance.

Applications are open throughout the year, and grants are awarded each month following a random computerised draw.

A Grant can be used towards the following essential costs:

  • Apprenticeship costs - such as travel and equipment
  • Further education costs - including travel, laptops and books/study materials
  • Other study or work related costs - such as travel, specialist clothing/uniform and skills training

Community Grants

Our 2021 round of Community Grants is now closed.

We’re so proud to have supported over 200 great causes through our Community Grants since 2018. From 2022 we'll be focusing on Young Person's Education Grants, expanding our member benefit offering and developing long-term local and national charity partnerships.
