The Nuffield Foundation was established in 1943. The Foundation aims to achieve this by supporting work which will bring about improvements in society, and which is founded on careful reflection and informed by objective and reliable evidence. The Foundation looks to support projects that are imaginative and innovative, take a thoughtful and rigorous approach to problems, and have the potential to influence policy or practice. The Foundation also runs a number of grant programmes that are targeted towards specific purposes. Some provide support for scientists and social scientists at the early stages of their careers; others support particular kinds of projects or people. Finally, the Foundation sets up and runs projects of its own. Most of the grants made by the Foundation are for work in the UK. However the Trustees are keen to encourage projects that have a European dimension.
The Foundation currently has three grant programmes in areas of social policy. These are:
Access to Justice - promotes access to, and understanding of, the civil justice system.
Child Protection and Family Justice - helps to ensure that the legal and institutional framework is best adapted to meet the needs of children and families.
