New Philanthropy Capital: Transition Advice Fund

Health & Social Care

The Transition Advice Fund (TAF), managed by New Philanthropy Capital (NPC) is a pooled fund established by Unbound Philanthropy, the Paul Hamlyn Foundation and the Legal Education Foundation.

The fund currently totals £660,000, to be distributed over three years, and aims to build the capacity of the voluntary sector to support European citizens currently living in the UK who will need to apply for ‘settled status’ to secure their right to stay here once Britain has left the EU. The Fund wishes to ensure that people who are eligible can secure their right to settled status—particularly those who need help to navigate the process or who risk failing to secure the status. The Advisory Panel particularly want to support: children and young people; carers; people with disability, long-term physical ill-health or mental health problems; people who have experienced domestic violence or trafficking; those with poor English language skills or who face digital exclusion; and people in care homes.
