Our programmes are open to leaders of any charity or social enterprise that tackles social disadvantage in the UK. They are most successful when working with:

Organisations that:

  • are open to and embrace change and challenge
  • have a turnover of between £100K and £5m
  • have been delivering services for at least 2 years
  • have at least 1 full-time, paid leadership position
  • are able to demonstrate a degree of financial stability to engage with us
  • are no longer in a start-up phase

Leaders who:

  • have been in position for at least 6 months
  • have the capacity to dedicate time to our programmes

Organisations working with predominantly Black, Asian and minority ethnic service users or addressing issues in these communities are encouraged to apply.

There are different programmes available to suit different needs and based on the information you provide, we will work with you to determine which programme is the best fit. We select charities on an ongoing basis and encourage you to apply as soon as possible. Please look below for particular deadlines for programmes we are actively looking to fill.


We are actively seeking charities from across the UK to participate in our programmes. We will review, assess and place charities on a rolling basis.

Pilotlight 360 is currently run through a blend of in-person and virtual meetings, via Zoom. All other programmes are currently run exclusively through virtual meetings, via Zoom.

If you’re unsure what kind of support is better for your needs, please apply anyway or contact our Charity Partnerships team on 07483 014783 or [email protected] to discuss your requirements in more detail.
