The Mason Foundation – Building a Better Future for All

“The starting point to a happier, healthier, and more fulfilled life – leaving no one behind”

The Mason Foundation are very keen to work with Careers Hubs locally and in particular have just been awarded some additional funding.


Please get in touch with and/or share her contact with Careers Hubs.


The Mason Foundation was established in 2017, to provide opportunities to support individuals and families from all walks of life, focusing on those who may face additional challenges.

Our mission is to remove barriers, provide opportunities to build lasting friendships, celebrate inclusivity, and reduce inequalities.

The first initiative launched by The Foundation was The Mason Mile – locally centred, community-based miles, where everyone can come together to do 15 minutes of activity, doing #TheirMileTheirWay, regardless of ability or disability. This has continued to evolve and now includes additional programmes such as The Family Mile and The Community Mile.

In 2021, The Mason Foundation launched Propel. Following the devastating impact of the pandemic, the global economy was struggling with a shortage of workers for entry-level roles. Through an existing partnership with The Oaks Specialist College, we were very aware of the challenges facing young people with learning disabilities to successfully secure and maintain appropriate employment, specifically in entry-level roles. It felt like there was a huge disconnect. This led to the development of Propel, a programme set up to overcome barriers and support young people with learning disabilities into work

What Schools Say About Us

Being part of the Stoke on Trent and Staffordshire Careers Hub has been pivotal to the development of careers provision in our school. The Hub have shared good practice across their members resulting in a stronger focus on good quality provision. The annual event enabled the hub to share their vision of School Improvement Through The Lens of Careers and looking beyond the Benchmarks. It was a fantastic opportunity to share different models of school improvement and strategies to further develop careers provision to enhance the future opportunities of our young people.
