Social Justice Fund Wins Business Charity Award

Sony Music UK’s Social Justice Fund won the Corporate Foundation prize at last night’s Third Sector Business Charity Awards, which celebrate the collaboration between outstanding corporate and not-for-profit organisations.

The Global Social Justice Fund (SJF) operates across different territories and divisions of Sony, with a common goal to address injustice and racism, while being responsive to local challenges. Since the fund was created in June 2020, the SJF team at Sony Music UK have concentrated on how to support anti-racist initiatives in Britain, addressing structural inequality for lasting change. To date, the UK SJF – with a focus on broadening access to music education and skills, backing criminal justice reform projects, and supporting grassroots communities – has awarded almost £2.2million in grants to 22 charity partners working across the country.

The judges praised the winners, saying: “Sony’s Social Justice Fund tackles critical issues that are impacting their target market, using their core strengths and assets in a holistic, highly engaging and creative way.

With strong competition in the Corporate Foundation category, Charlotte Edgeworth, Sony Music UK’s Director of Diversity, Inclusion & Social Impact, was delighted to accept the award alongside colleagues and representatives from some SJF partners – Key4Life, Young Urban Arts Foundation, Small Green Shoots, and OnSide Youth Zones.

Many congratulations to all those involved.
