Open Palm - CS Charity of the Year

Why we need your help

Open Palm is fortunate enough to be selected by Charles Stanley employees to be Charles Stanley's 'Charity of the Year 2021/22'!

Our mission is simple: to create fairer opportunities for people to thrive, regardless of their ethnic or socio-economic background. We are a UK-registered charity (1190203) whose aims are to make education more accessible and empower people to succeed regardless of their ethnic background.

We do this through delivering free educational life-skills programmes to u-18s, improving learning environments and addressing racial inequality.


We have developed a free Financial Literacy course, WYZ Money, which has enrolled over 100 young people throughout the country, with many more registered. We have reached over 150 young people through related workshops with schools and youth groups, with more workshops upcoming. We have also launched free employability skills programme, WYZ For Work, to prepare young people to enter and thrive in the workplace. We are on track to reach 1,000 young people by the end of 2021.

Both programmes are aimed at 13-17 year olds from Black and Minority Ethnic backgrounds. Both courses allow young people to gain a nationally-recognised accreditation in the process. These programmes aim to address inequalities disproportionately affecting the Black, Mixed Heritage and Ethnic Minority community, such as financial well-being and representation in leadership. 

We also support under-funded schools to help them better meet the needs of their students. In the UK, we are focused on addressing 'digital poverty', so that students have the technology to fully participate in lessons and homework irrespective of their socio-economic background. We are also partnering with schools in certain developing countries, such as Uganda, to help meet very basic needs of students such as providing the school with academic textbooks to enable students to complete their homework.
