Our vision and values


The mission of the Foundation is to promote the education of young people in Inner London through its grant programmes for individuals, educational institutions and organisations.



Our core values provide the basis for the Foundation’s mission.  They shape the way we pursue our vision and underpin the way we behave with each other as well as the way we interact with the world around us.

Our core values are:

Efficiency and Professionalism - we aim to treat people with dignity and respect always adhering to the highest personal and professional standards in the pursuit of business efficiency.

Openness and Transparency – our policies, procedures and processes conform to the highest standards of governance and will stand the test of probity.

Consideration – we treat everyone with empathy, compassion and understanding as we ourselves would wish to be treated.

Innovation – we actively seek creative excellence to achieve change for the better.



Our Vision is to be regarded as an influential organisation, contributing to educational policy, practice and research in order to shape and meet the evolving needs of London’s young people.
