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 (CIC’s);
  • cover and deliver in at least one of the following geographical areas – Greater London, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, Oxfordshire, Surrey, Kent, Hampshire, West Sussex, Warwickshire and the City of Birmingham; and
  • align with one of our priority areas:
