Standard Life Foundation: Financial Wellbeing Fund

Funding for research, campaigning and policy work to improve living standards and personal finances for people on low to middle incomes in the UK.

The Standard Life Foundation, an independent charitable foundation, makes between 15 and 20 grants each year, awarding a total of over £2 million to organisations undertaking charitable activities in the UK. This includes voluntary organisations, think tanks, campaigning groups, research bodies and universities.

The funding is intended for strategic work, including policy work, campaigning and research, which has the potential to improve financial wellbeing at a national scale.

The Foundation is interested in funding projects that examine and promote measures to:

  • Increase incomes for those on low-to-middle incomes.
  • Ensure people have an adequate safety net, building savings and assets.
  • Reduce the cost of living, making sure those on lower incomes are not paying more.
  • Address issues related to spending and borrowing, particularly where it becomes problematic.

There is no minimum or maximum size of grant. Organisations should apply for the amount they need. Typically grants range between £10,000 and £200,000, with most being between £50,000 and £120,000 in total. The funding may be spread over one, two or three years, and sometimes shorter periods, for example six months.
