The Santander Foundation Grants Programme: Financial & Digital Empowerment Fund
The Santander Foundation Grants Programme's Financial & Digital Empowerment Fund aims to help more people in the UK become digitally and financially empowered.
The Santander Foundation wants to support UK charities to give people the digital confidence, knowledge, and skills to enable then to make better, more informed decisions about money and have access to financial services. People with low or unstable incomes, or those who have experienced a significant life shock, are particularly affected by financial exclusion. The key groups they hope to reach with the fund are lone parents, single pensioners, migrants and refugees, those with long term illnesses and disabilities, those struggling to find sustained employment and households headed by students or part-time workers.
