Being the Story will get people talking – will you be part of the conversation by joining our valued partners? Take a look at our 2018 partners:
Lankelly Chase is an independent charitable foundation and their vision is of a society where people facing multiple disadvantages are able to lead rewarding lives, with healthy networks of support.
Their aim is to create and contribute to a system that can adapt and is effective in responding to the interlocking nature of multiple disadvantages, such as homelessness, drug misuse, violence and abuse and mental ill health. They do this by building relationships across the system so that the learning from their work can ripple out.
Joseph Rowntree Foundation
The Joseph Rowntree Foundation is an independent organisation working to inspire social change through research, policy and practice. JRF want to see a prosperous UK where everyone can play their part.
They work in partnership with individuals, communities and a range of organisations to achieve their goals. They use evidence and experience, and search for the underlying causes of social issues so that they can demonstrate practical solutions that bring about lasting change.
The Joseph Rowntree Foundation sponsored bursary places for charities with a direct remit to tackle UK Poverty and people with first hand experience of poverty in order to build confidence around storytelling.
Constructive Voices is an NCVO programme which finds, and shares with journalists, stories of how charities and social enterprises are responding to pressing problems and having a positive impact tackling them. It champions constructive journalism, a solutions-oriented approached to news which examines what’s working – and why – rather than focusing purely on what’s going wrong, offering a more accurate reflection of our world and exploring ways to make progress. Constructive Voices also collaborates with journalism colleges to introduce students to constructive journalism and establish links with local voluntary sector organisations. Constructive Voices is committed to encouraging community engagement and social improvement.
In 2016, Comic Relief set up an open funding programme, the Core Strength grants initiative, for small and medium-sized community based charitable organisations. By providing flexible core funding, the initiative aimed to support organisations to be stronger, more resilient and independent, and as a result better able to meet the needs of the people they support. Grants started in January 2017 and will run until January 2019. The initiative is jointly funded by Comic Relief and the Tampon Tax Fund, a partnership between Comic Relief and HM Government to support women and girls. Grants to a value of over £700,000 were awarded to organisations working primarily with women and girls.
Lloyds Bank Foundation
Lloyds Bank Foundation for England and Wales partners with small and local charities who help people overcome complex social issues. Through long-term funding, developmental support and influencing policy and practice, the Foundation helps those charities make life-changing impact.

As part of their developmental support Lloyds Bank Foundation has sponsored a number of bursary places for charities they fund to attend Being the Story.
