Being The Story partners

  • Paul Hamlyn Foundation

    Paul Hamlyn Foundation was established by Paul Hamlyn in 1987. On his death in 2001, he left most of his estate to the Foundation, creating one of the largest independent grant-making foundations in the UK. Their mission is to help people overcome disadvantage and lack of opportunity, so that they can realise their potential and enjoy fulfilling and creative lives. They have a particular interest in supporting young people and a strong belief in the importance of the arts.
    Their Ideas and Pioneers Fund supports people with unusual or radical ideas to improve the life chances and opportunities of people in the UK.
    Paul Hamlyn Foundation has given £10,000 to the Being the Story spokespersons network pilot.

  • Lankelly Chase Foundation

    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.
    Lankelly Chase Foundation has given £10,000 to the Being the Story spokespersons network pilot.

  • Byline Festival

    Byline Festival is an international festival of free speech and independent media. Our Being the Story speakers will be taking the stage to share their stories and the importance of listening to the voices of those with lived experience.
