Thank you to our supporters

We are enormously grateful to the generous support of a number of individuals and organisations who have supported Onward financially in our first two years. We are a small organisation entirely dependent on the generosity of our network to survive so we really would not have been able to do it without their help.

When Onward launched, we made a commitment to be transparent about our funding. Please find below a list of individuals and organisations who have financially contributed more than £5,000 (or equivalent) in the last 12 months.

We do not accept corporate funding for research. Therefore any corporate body listed has supported Onward through event sponsorship or membership of our business network.

This list is updated every six months. You can view the previous release here.
