Fredericks Foundation

Fredericks Foundation is a micro finance charity that helps people in the UK who want to achieve financial independence away from a life of poverty or dependence on state benefits. The charity was set up in 2001 by Paul Barry-Walsh, a successful entrepreneur, who wanted to help others who aspire to run their own business but are unable to obtain the funding.

  • Mission statement

    We aim to help people with nowhere else to turn, who face barriers and rejections, to realise their potential. We help them to develop their confidence, and support them in their aspirations to achieve self-sustainability and long term success. We do this by enabling our Clients to start and run their own businesses through provision of a support package comprising guidance, encouragement, loans, and mentors, thus giving them tools and resources to become self-sufficient and contribute to society economically.

    We help people who are unemployed, in financial hardship, single parents, ex-offenders, and/or disabled. We provide an individual, flexible approach which enables them to build their own route into work, designed for their unique combination of talents and disadvantages. Self-employment is not right for everybody, but for many people with any or all of these disadvantages, it offers flexibility and personal control which can make all the difference in trying to achieve economic independence.
