The Share Foundation is a registered charity which operates two major schemes on behalf of the Department of Education, in order to improve the life skills and financial resources of Looked-After children throughout the United Kingdom: the junior ISA and Child Trust Fund schemes. These arrangements have thus far benefited over 100,000 children and young people in care.
Six million Child Trust Funds were put in place for children with families in receipt of Child Tax Credit, however approximately one million are 'addressee gone away' - that is, lost to the young person to whom they belong. Sharefound are determined to re-link as many young people as possible to their accounts.
