Welcome To Helena Kennedy Foundation

The Foundation exists to overcome social injustice by providing financial bursaries, mentoring and support to disadvantaged students from the further and adult education sectors, enabling them to complete their studies in higher education and move on successfully into employment.

We do this by:

  • taking social action to increase the number and enhance the value of bursaries awarded each year.
  • encouraging social mobility by increasing the range and types of student support available, particularly for talented students from non-traditional backgrounds.
  • promoting social justice by offering more opportunities for students and graduates to participate in peer mentoring, work shadowing, and personal skills training; and by extending the reach of our student support volunteers network.
