At the Berkeley Foundation, We Believe Every Young Person Has Enormous Potential.

Since 2011 we have been working in partnership with expert organisations to give young people and their communities the tools and resources they need to thrive and be a force for change in the world. We use all our resources to support organisations, young people and communities to have a positive impact in the areas where Berkeley Group works. 

We work with organisations that:

  • are registered charities or community interest companies (CICs);
  • cover and deliver in at least one of the following geographical areas – Greater London, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, Oxfordshire, Somerset, Surrey, Kent, Hampshire, West Sussex, Warwickshire and the City of Birmingham; and
  • align with one of our priority areas:

A Resilient Voluntary Sector

In 2022/23 we distributed £3.9m to our partner charities through grants, staff fundraising and payroll giving donations.

Resilience Fund 

The main funding programme for which we accept applications is our Resilience Fund, which represents a £900,000 investment in strengthening the voluntary sector between 2021-2025. 

Year 3 of the Resilience Fund was open to applications between 8 January 2024 – 2 February 2024. Applications were welcomed from organisations working with young people who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness, and who face multiple layers of discrimination and inequality. 

We are unable to accept applications for funding outside of the Resilience Fund.
