OneFamily Foundation Charity Fund 2017

At OneFamily we understand the financial challenges families are facing and are passionate about helping overcome them. 

Our OneFamily Foundation’s programme of Personal Grants and Community Awards already provides financial support to help improve the lives of our customers, their loved ones and their local communities.

The initiative will enable three national charities to fund campaigns or projects that will help families ease financial strain.

Aims of the fund

Most families experience financial pressures and insecurity at some point in their lives.  The loss of a loved one, redundancy, a relationship break-up, an unplanned cost or illness, even the happy arrival of a new baby can put unwelcome pressure on the family finances.

For some, that pressure causes worry, stress or confusion. For others, it can lead to spiralling debt, the use of food banks or homelessness.

The OneFamily Foundation Charity Fund aims to help combat and alleviate such pressures and make a positive and meaningful change to the lives of even more families across the UK.

Three charities will be given the opportunity to receive an average of £40,000 for campaigns or influencing projects that will have a positive and powerful social impact. The type of campaigns or projects we are looking to support through the Charity Fund include:

  1. Projects that raise awareness of family budgeting, education or debt advice
  2. Initiatives that better identify and support families at risk of homelessness before they reach crisis point
  3. Campaigns for policy change aimed at alleviating financial pressures such as the cost of elderly care.

Or other campaigns, projects or initiatives which push for positive change to ease the financial strain faced by families.
