Friends Provident Foundation - Building Resilient Economies
The aim of this funding programme is to contribute to a more resilient, sustainable and fairer economic system. There are two outcomes that flow from the overall aim: ‘systems change’ and ‘local economic resilience’.
Local economic resilience projects will focus on testing and reviewing local or small-scale initiatives that build economic resilience through diversity, flexibility and building capability in communities. They will support projects that share learning about effective ways for communities to create more sustainable economic systems and retain more of the value generated. This might include creating community assets or new approaches to local finance.
System change projects will require strong analysis of the issues and possible solutions. They will also need to develop and demonstrate methods that will effectively change policy and corporate behaviours in pursuit of wider social objectives.
