Please consider supporting us so that we can continue to research intergenerational unfairness for many years to come.
By leaving a gift in your will to IF, you are helping to protect the interests of younger and future generations.
Here is the wording for a residuary gift:
“I give the residue of my estate to the Intergenerational Foundation (IF), 19 Half Moon Lane, London SE24 9JU (registered charity no: 1142 230) for its general charitable purposes. I further direct that the receipt of the trustees or other proper officer of the said charity for the time being shall be a full and sufficient discharge for the said gift.”

We undertake research with, and consultancy for, corporate and charitable organisations where we have mutual interests and objectives. These include improving intergenerational fairness in the workplace, think piece collaboration, or conducting research with, or on behalf of, partners. We are currently seeking partners interested in taxation research as well as housing and family research.
Case Study 1:
In 2021, thanks to funding from Curtis Banks, IF was able to publish our 10-year anniversary research looking at the plight of younger generations over the past decade. We continued our relationship in 2022 with research into the barriers younger generations face when it comes to being able to save. The Savings Squeeze: Young people locked out from the benefits of saving was featured by national news outlets.
Case Study 2:
Thanks to funding from Yorkshire Building Society IF was able to undertake research quantifying how much the average young household has to spend on essentials. All Consuming Pressures: The cost-of-living crisis facing younger generations found that the average young household was having to spend 63% of weekly income. The report received national media coverage and was cited in parliamentary reports.
Case Study 3:
We were commissioned to undertake research into how intergenerational fairness is affecting communities in “Big Local” areas identified by Local Trust. The organisation has a mission to enable residents to make their communities and their areas even better places in which to live. Click here to see the essay published in book format.
Case Study 4:
We were keen to draw attention to how the housing crisis has affected communities up and down the UK from an intergenerational point of view and, by partnering with Legal & General (L&G), we were able to undertake an age segregation research project called “Generations Apart”. The report concluded that the generations are living in increasing isolation from each other, driven in large part by the cost of housing. IF identified the Top 10 towns or cities where age segregation is most acute, and called for policies to prevent this process becoming ever more entrenched. The report achieved substantial broadcast, print, and online media coverage, as well as interest from policy-makers.
Case Study 5:
IF provided consultancy advice to the Bank Workers Charity (BWC) in order to investigate the future financial vulnerabilities facing 500,000 frontline bank workers over the next 20 years. A research brief was produced in partnership with BWC, research was undertaken, and recommendations presented. If you would like to discuss how IF could work with your organisation please email [email protected].
