CREATIVITY WITH A CONSCIENCE

We’re proud to be the only health and wellness award show in the world to donate a proportion of profits towards a Talent and Diversity Fund.

Any charity from across the world can apply for it. All they have to do is demonstrate how they would use the money to help increase diversity and underprivileged talent break into health and wellness communication agencies.

Winners of our prestigious awards are invited to review all submissions and decide who gets the money.

JOLT Academy is the leading diversity focused grassroots training organisation for the creative industry. We find, train and manage interns from ALL under-represented backgrounds for many of the UK’s leading creative companies. The funding provided by The Creative Floor’s Talent and Diversity Fund has been pivotal in allowing us to expand our services and to positively impact the lives of more people by providing opportunity to those with the most talent and least access.

The Ideas Foundation

We’re here to help move the creative, tech and communications industries in a more diverse direction. We’re asking them to think bigger and open their doors to students who don’t normally get a look-in. The Creative Floor funding has helped us to run creative projects with young people from a range of diverse backgrounds: gender, ethnicity, faith, geography, sexuality, social background.
