The Inflexion Foundation commits £400,000 per year to IntoUniversity

The Inflexion Foundation is pleased to announce that it has extended its partnership with IntoUniversity, an education charity that inspires young people to achieve, with a grant of £400,000 per year for the next five years.

IntoUniversity has been working at the heart of communities since 2002, and now operates 41 learning centres in 24 UK towns and cities. Its centres offer a welcoming home-from-home for young people: a safe space to learn, explore and succeed. Each local centre offers an innovative programme that supports young people aged seven and up to realise their ambitions, achieve their academic potential, develop vital skills and gain experience of the world of work.

The Inflexion Foundation’s grant will be split into two priority areas where the partnership can create a meaningful change. £250,000 per year will be dedicated to five regional IntoUniversity centres with a further £150,000 per year that will be used to support IntoUniversity’s broad strategic aims. The Inflexion team will also devote time to pro bono opportunities.

The Inflexion Foundation has been a long-term supporter of IntoUniversity and over the last three years, £600,000 has been donated to support IntoUniversity’s centres across the UK. Pro bono support has also been key to the partnership, and 16 workshops for young people have been hosted and supported by 48 Inflexion colleagues, with over 260 hours of support given by the Inflexion team.
