Inclusive Economy Partnership – Deadline 4th October 2017 by midday

0

Bringing together business, civil society and government to help address major societal challenges facing those on low to middle incomes.

We can connect you with leading businesses and civil society organisations to scale your activities, build your network and award you up to £20k to develop plans to achieve these goals.

By encouraging collaboration and partnerships between business, civil society and government, there is an opportunity to join up and scale the wide range of existing good work being done on critical social and economic issues.

The Partnership will identify, engage with and support the scaling of existing, high potential solutions that focus on tackling the challenges of Financial Inclusion and Capability, Mental Health and Transition to Work, particularly for low to middle-income households.

Solutions can be, but are not limited to: products, services, programmes, principles, standards of practice and can be delivered by charities, social enterprises, commercial enterprises, voluntary organisations, community groups, and other incorporated entities or unincorporated associations with formal membership structures.

The Challenges

We are focused on Financial Inclusion and Capability, Mental Health and Transition to Work given the impact these challenges have on low to middle-income households across the UK.

Financial Inclusion and Capability: 10 million working people who are either financially struggling or squeezed lack access to affordable and high-quality financial products and services

Mental Health: Mental health problems are one of the largest public health challenges facing the UK with 1 in 4 people suffering from a mental health problem annually

Transition to Work: Young people in the UK are over 2.5 times less likely to be employed than the average for the working age population
