Initially based in Swansea before expanding into Neath Port Talbot, Rhondda Cynon Taf, Bridgend, Merthyr Tydfil, Blaenau Gwent, and more recently expanding into Carmarthenshire, The Mullany Fund has worked with hundreds of young people and many schools across South Wales helping to grow interest in life science and science areas. We have also piloted our work in three areas in North Wales.
We believe passionately that all young people should have equal opportunities to succeed and we work tirelessly with our partners across communities to ensure that we promote and encourage the ambition, ability and effort of every young person we engage with.
With investment from a variety of funders, we have developed several projects of support designed to provide young people with opportunities to succeed; to improve confidence and build resilience; and to foster a stronger sense of agency.
Our innovative flagship project matching young people with one-to-one professional mentors based within the life sciences or wider STEM areas.
A series of talks delivered in schools and online raising awareness of specific careers, routes into work, apprenticeships and HE.
Work experience placements designed to help students make informed decisions about future careers in life sicneces, healthcare and wider STEM areas.
An annual prize recognising outstanding students of Physiotherapy at UWE and of Medicine at Swansea University.
