Baring Foundation

Baring Foundation's aim is to improve the quality of life of people suffering disadvantage and discrimination. They aim to achieve this through making grants to strengthen voluntary sector organisations which serve them directly or indirectly. From 2012 to 2015, the Strengthening the Voluntary Sector programme will focus on the legal advice sector. This reflects the Foundation’s on-going commitment to supporting an effective system of social welfare law services. The programme is called Future Advice and has two strands. The first is the Providers Fund. This helps advice organisations to develop and implement ideas for restructuring and organisational development that will put agencies on a more sustainable footing.
