Julia Grant – Impetus Trust

what impetus trust is all about
What Impetus Trust Is All About
  • Impetus Trust is a charity that helps other charities to scale up and achieve greater impact (last year we helped turn around the lives of over 450,000 people through our active portfolio of 14 charities )
  • Impetus works with best in class charities that are tackling the root causes of poverty but who need strategic support (2,000 charities have applied for help from Impetus since 2002)
  • Impetus is the pioneer of ‘venture philanthropy’ in the UK set up ten years ago (won the top award for grantmaking at the UK Charity Awards 2008 & The Institute for Turnaround’s Top Turnaround Award 2011 (Third and Public Sector category)

An independent evaluation by Bain & Company reported that 94% of the charities Impetus helps said that they could not have achieved the same degree of change without Impetus.

Why We ExistBreaking the cycle ofeconomic disadvantage

What St Giles does:

St Giles Trust reduces reoffending through a range of innovative projects. The foundation of its work is training ex-offenders to help others in need to resettle and make a positive contribution to society. The focus is on providing access to housing, training and jobs for ex-offenders, especially through its peer advisor work in prisons.
