Inspiring Minds

Together, we can make a difference to the lives of students and impact on society locally, nationally and internationally.

What part will you play?

Imagine being the person who makes a significant difference to the life of a student from a disadvantaged background.

The person who enables them to be the best that they can be.

The person who supports them through university and helps them to secure opportunities that would otherwise be out of reach.

You could support our scientists, help their research breakthrough and be part of the solution to some of the biggest challenges our society faces today.

Our projects unite and enable people and communities to do extraordinary things.

By donating to the Inspiring Minds campaign, you can be a part of something transformational.

Student Opportunities

Students should be encouraged and supported to be the best they can be, whatever their background.

You can provide a helping-hand to a young person to gain confidence, secure a first-class education, be recruited to a good graduate-entry job, and transform their life.
