Innovation for All Grants Now Available


31 January 2023/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

Funding for projects using innovative and creative solutions to benefit communities in the UK.

Kilburn & Strode LLP is a leading practice firm of intellectual property attorneys. Annually, it donates 1% of profits to its charitable arm, the Innovation for All Foundation.

Grants from the Foundation are intended to support technological innovation as a tool for community benefit, including through improved wellbeing, greater access to opportunities and improvements to community safety.

This year, a number of grants of £10,000, £20,000 and £30,000 will be made.

The fund is not supposed to be prescriptive in terms of the kinds of activities deemed eligible. Successful past initiatives have included innovative approaches for:

  • Prevention of youth crime and anti-social behaviour.
  • Provision of emergency support for people with disabilities.
  • Obtaining justice and reparations for victims of torture and human rights violations.

Registered charities based in the UK or overseas may apply as long as they have appropriate governance in place.

Applications are open until 31 March 2023.


How To Apply

Applications are open until 31 March 2023. Successful applicants will be decided by employee vote.

Full guidance and an online application form can be found on the Innovation for All Foundation website.
