Good Things Foundation: Financial Support and Employability Survey

Source By: J P Morgan Chase Foundation Research

Good Things Foundation, the national charity for digital inclusion, is doing research for JP Morgan Chase Foundation. We are interested in how people in East London (Hackney, Newham, Tower Hamlets) get support for work, financial capability and digital inclusion. 


Good Things Foundation and SCVO (in Scotland) are working together to better understand how a range of organisations are helping clients and beneficiaries to use digital technology as part of their work. 

We are particularly interested in how technology is currently used to help people who want to:
  • Make the most of their money
  • Find a job or progress in work
Each of these goals might be reached through particular kinds of help, informal support, referrals, or courses that help people to learn in a more structured way. 

We have already done a lot of work to understand the different activities that can help people to achieve each of these goals. This survey is designed to add to our knowledge and test our understanding of how this works in practice.

We appreciate the time that you take to complete this survey (it should take you no more than five minutes). 

Good Things Foundation has a formal partnership with Save the Children. This year so far we have raised almost £2k to support their work.  For each survey returned we will donate £1.

The results of this survey will be fed into a research report to be shared with key stakeholders and potential funders in Spring 2020.

Esmee Fairbairn Foundation - Main Fund

Source By: Community Matters Yorkshire

Funds the charitable activities of organisations that have the ideas and ability to achieve change for the better.

Primary interests are in the UK's cultural life, education and learning, the natural environment and enabling disadvantaged people to participate more fully in society. Average grant size 50,000.
