The Ideas and Pioneers Fund supports people with unusual or radical ideas to improve the life chances and opportunities of people in the UK. Grants of up to £10,000 (and up to £15,000 in exceptional circumstances) are available to individuals, partnerships or small organisations.
We want to work with people whose ideas are in their early stages of development and will consider funding work to develop ideas from concept to set-up: this may include problem definition and analysis, scoping, exploratory work and prototyping. We want to help you get started and introduce you to a group of peers for mutual support.
