About us

Equity Foundation has a proven track record of delivering social value. We recognise that communities have the ideas, passion and resources to make society a better place. Our role is to support communities to make these changes happen. We invest in communities and projects which deliver societal change.

Check out our annual report to see what we achieved last year.

We want to create long term impact for communities, so we support projects which deliver measurable change. We focus on supporting projects which:

  • Support the development of the social enterprise sector
  • Tackle health and wellbeing or support older people as priority themes
  • Have a focus within the Stockport area.

We work in two ways: providing awards to community groups through our grants programme and supporting our corporate partners to invest in grassroots projects they otherwise wouldn’t be able to reach.

The Equity Foundation is a trading name of Equity Housing Group Limited, with its governance arrangements being managed and co-ordinated through Equity Enterprises Limited a wholly owned subsidiary of the Group.
