The Stephen Lloyd Awards are now open for applications.
The aim of the awards is to help create success by finding and nurturing innovative ideas and projects that can lead to social change. The awards committee is particularly interested in supporting ideas that address social problems at a systemic level.
Examples of previous awards include:
Canute – a new digital Braille ‘iPad’ which attempts to transform the lives of blind people by reversing the decline in Braille literacy.
Campaign Bootcamp – a hands on learning environment designed to give people the skills, network and confidence they need to change the world through campaigning. Anyone or any organisation that has an innovative idea that seeks to address a problem systemically can apply.
The winning applicant will receive significant pro bono advice for their idea from the Committee’s extensive network of contacts, as well as funding of up to £20,000. Shortlisted applicants will also be awarded up to £2,000 to further develop their idea, and will also benefit from similar pro bono expertise.
The closing date for applications is the 7th April 2017.
