Welcome to The Rank Foundation
To date, over 200 charities have benefited from the leadership programme – typically UK youth and community care organisations. The scheme was set up following discussions in 2008 about the impact of the impending recession on charities that The Rank Foundation supported and on young people setting out on their chosen career path. Following an extensive pilot project, based on a volunteering scheme, the Time to Shine Internship Programme was created. It has developed and grown over the years and in 2019 was re-branded as the Time to Shine Leadership Programme. In the same year, The Rank Foundation received a grant of £3m from The National Lottery Community Fund to expand the programme over the next three years. This means more help for additional organisations facing everyday challenges and offers more individuals the opportunity to shine.
Since 2010, there have been over 300 Time to Shiners!
