Vodafone unveils partners project

The Vodafone UK Foundation has launched a £5m programme to fund charities working in partnership to help 16 to 25-year-olds who face social exclusion.

To be eligible for a three-year grant, charities must apply in pairs or larger groups. The partners need not have experience of working in collaboration, but must have shared goals of service delivery or implementing parallel services.

The programme, called Reach, is launched today. It is the foundation's second project to fund collaborative working. Its first initiative brought together Shelter, Samaritans and YouthNet.

"Collaboration brought greater benefit to the organisations involved in our last programme," said Sarah Shillito, head of the Vodafone UK Foundation.

"When charities apply to Reach, we want to have an idea of how the organisations plan to work together so that every party benefits."
