Walker Family
Through financial and non-financial resources,
the Foundation aims to deliver sustainable and
lasting change to those who need it most.
Our grant scheme focuses on the areas of
Clean Water, Meal-A-Day and Essential
Medicines provision. We hold the values of
Compassion, Justice, Integrity, Impact and
Sustainability central to all aspects of our
support and operation.
“We want to ensure the causes we support
as well as the fund itself, are sustainable.
We wish to create a lasting charitable trust,
which will continue beyond our lifetimes”.
The Walker Family
The Just Living Foundation was set
up to create a living fund, supporting
causes we felt passionate about as
a family, focusing on human needs
and rights.
Impact and Sustainability are key motivations
for our Foundation’s grant strategy, we aim to
support grassroot partners, and hope to achieve
change in an effective and efficient way.
Stuart, along with his two sons, Julian and
Mel were keen to combine and employ their
expertise in business, organisation and ethics
to support developments in small charities as
well as providing financial aid.
The Family are committed to engaging with
charity partners personally as well as through
financial support to maximise their partner’s
capacity and growth.
The Foundation began as a trust fund from the
sale of Stuart’s business. The foundation came
about through the family’s wish to increase
their philanthropic activtity in an ethical and
sustainable way.
“The last piece of the puzzle fell into place
through our work with Alex. Her passion for
supporting small charities, whilst maximising
the impact of financial contributions meant
a strong alignment with our objectives; so
we asked her to work alongside us to achieve
our vision and values”.
