Deadline: 21 January 2019
The Friends Provident Foundation is inviting applicants from UK for “Building Resilient Economies Programme” to contribute to a more resilient, sustainable and fairer economic system.
The recent economic and social uncertainty in the UK and beyond has demonstrated that financial markets can exacerbate social disharmony and inequality.
Friends Provident Foundation is particularly concerned with the impact of economic systems on the most vulnerable. This is where the flaws in the system show most starkly, not just in terms of poverty, but also inequality.
