About the Foundation
“I set up the Peter Jones Foundation because I believe that with the right mix of support and opportunity, every young person has the potential to achieve great things and the right to a brighter future. To achieve this we deliver world-class enterprise education through our Foundation for Enterprise, and support some of the most disadvantaged young people to improve their lives through our Foundation for Children.” Peter Jones CBE
Through the Foundation for Enterprise, we improve the socio-economic outcomes for young people by equipping them with enterprise skills that will improve their life chances, whatever path they choose.
