Who we are

Established in 2019 and founded by Michael and Henrietta Lindsell, The Lindsell Foundation looks to fund initiatives that will inspire and support children and young people of all abilities who are in need of additional help to fulfil their potential.

The Lindsell Foundation aims to create better futures, opportunities and improve life chances for children and young people from disadvantaged backgrounds, through supporting projects that focus on academic learning, social development and career progression.

By funding projects that focus on educational and vocational support, the foundation’s mission is to have a positive impact on young people’s lives, helping them to progress academically, develop essential life skills and prepare them for work and future careers. The Lindsell Foundation looks to build long term partnerships, funding projects over several years.

The Lindsell Foundation - Who we are

The Lindsell Foundation provides funding and grants to projects which are focused on educational and vocational support for children and young people in the UK. The Foundation seeks out projects and programmes independently through trustee led research and is currently supporting the following projects.

IntoUniversity - Norwich

The Lindsell Foundation has partnered with IntoUniversity alongside the lead partner The University of East Anglia to help set up a new learning centre in Norwich. IntoUniversity works with universities and schools to support young people from disadvantaged backgrounds helping them to either gain a place at university or to find their feet in their chosen field.

IntoUniversity - Great Yarmouth

The Lindsell Foundation partnered again with IntoUniversity to help set up the Great Yarmouth centre. The lead partners for this centre are UEA and Trinity College, Cambridge. The new centre was opened to great excitement by Myleene Klass on 5th March 2023 and is located in the popular Market Gates Shopping Centre which will help to integrate it into the local community.
