The Esmee Fairbairn – Social Change programme provides grants for projects that contribute to a just and inclusive society at every level (individual, community and system). The foundation believes that there are many people, including the increasing ageing population, with valuable contributions to make to their communities, workplaces and wider society. Often outside factors prevent them doing so – poor institutional
practice, a lack of connections, taboos, isolation, prejudice or discrimination. The programme supports independent organisations rooted in their community, who aim to encourage active citizenship, ownership and participation to remove barriers to social exclusion and poverty and protect the rights of people who are more vulnerable to popular prejudice, harmful action or inaction by public authorities.
