16/02/09: Paul Hamlyn Foundation
The Paul Hamlyn Foundation is one of the larger independent grant-making foundations in the UK.
It makes grants to organisations which aim to maximise opportunities for individuals to experience a full quality of life, both now and in the future. In particular PHF is concerned with children and young people, and others who are disadvantaged.
PHF prefer to support work which others may find hard to fund, perhaps because it breaks new ground, is too risky or is unpopular.
PHF also take initiatives itself where new thinking is required or where they believe there are important unexplored opportunities.
