Why we need your help

Move On relies on grants to fund projects and specific areas of our work as well as contribute to our running costs.

Support from trusts and foundations is vital to being able to deliver the services that meet the needs of hundreds of disadvantaged people across Glasgow and Edinburgh every year.

Work with us

We are committed to building long-term relationships with our partners and offer a wide range of funding options. Each one of our supporters receives dedicated support from a member of our experienced Fundraising team, who will help you meet your goals while ensuring your grant is having a real and lasting impact.

We can also organise visits to any one of our offices or social enterprises to meet the team, beneficiaries and see first-hand the difference your contribution makes.

How you can help

  • £1,000 would enable Move On to support 2 volunteers at MOWR
  • £10,000 would support 10 mentor matches, helping young people with poor mental health achieve life changing goals
  • £25,000 would run three 8-week employability programmes that could reach 30 young people, turning their lives around and onto a more positive destination such as college, training or employment.

To discuss a potential grant, please contact our dedicated Fundraising Team on  or 07787 256832. Whether you want to support a specific area, would like your contribution to be spent where it is needed most, or are just interested in learning more, we’d love to hear from you. Together we can discuss your key aims and priorities and how these might align with different aspects of our work.

Thank you
