Social Mobility in Scotland

Social Mobility in Scotland

From an open call in 2020, six charities working in Scotland on issues related to Social Mobility were chosen as partners with a 5-year commitment to financial backing and support.

Andrew and Allan Muirhead of Muirhead Advisory manage the Scottish relationships and provide crucial support and advice.

Flexible Childcare Services Scotland

Flexible Childcare Services Scotland is a young organisation with bold ambitions and a clearly defined vision. Established in 2019, this social enterprise aims to create equity of access to high quality, tailored early learning and school age childcare solutions for all children, families, and communities across Scotland.

People Know How

People Know How is a Scottish social innovation charity founded in 2013 on the principle that people know how to identify their needs and the solutions that will help them fulfil their potential and solve social issues. People often don’t realise that they know how, and that’s where we come in – unlocking ideas for a better future, today. We call this social innovation.

The Why Not? Trust

The Why Not? Trust for Care Experienced Young People aims to support the long-term relationships between young people with care experience and the people who matter to them.

The Social Mobility Foundation

The Social Mobility Foundation (SMF) is a charity that supports high-achieving young people from low-income backgrounds across the UK to access top universities and competitive professions. Established in London in 2006, we now also have offices in Birmingham, Cardiff, Glasgow, Liverpool, Manchester (also covering Leeds) and Newcastle.

The Lens

Working with The Lens uncovers the ideas and talent in your organisation that can transform its impact and effectiveness. We’ll help your people embrace an intrapreneurial mindset to drive innovation, embrace challenges and create opportunities for change.

Rank Aspire Programme

The Rank Foundation’s vision is to contribute to a society that values young leaders and the Aspire Programme invests in those who may have fewer opportunities to prosper. The aim of the programme is to increase young people’s social mobility through supporting access to training and employment opportunities in the social sector and beyond, and through this to increase their potential for future employment and success.
