About Us

We harness the power of social innovation to tackle the root causes of inequality. 

What we work on and why summed up in four minutes by The Young Foundation’s CEO, Simon Willis.

We believe inequality undermines the economy and corrodes our wellbeing, leaving its mark on communities, relationships, aspirations and self-worth.

The Young Foundation is working to create a more equal and just society, where each individual can be fulfilled in their own terms. We work with the public and private sectors and civil society to empower people to lead happier and more meaningful lives.

We believe little about the future of society is inevitable. Bound by our shared humanity, we believe we collectively have the power to shape the societies and communities we want to live in.
