The Everyone’s Environment programme
This briefing is part of the Everyone’s Environment programme, a collaboration of over 40 social and environmental charities and funders to empower people from different social groups to have their needs reflected in environmental decision making and policy. It is the third in a series, following previous briefings on how the climate and nature crises are impacting young people, and people from ethnic minority communities, and what changes would be most impactful.

The Garfield Weston Foundation is a family-founded grant-maker established in 1958 that gives money to support a wide range of charities across the UK. The Foundation’s funding comes from an endowment of shares in the Weston family business – a successful model that still exists today. The Weston family have a consistent aim: The more successful the family businesses, the more money the Foundation can donate. Each year the Foundation gives away its income and donations have continued to grow. Since it was established, it has donated over £1.4 billion, of which over half has been given away in the past ten years. In the most recent financial year the Foundation gave away nearly £90 million to over 1,980 charities across the UK.
