Martha Lane Fox founded Antigone in 2007. Antigone works with a small number of charities each year, learning more about the needs of socially excluded people so that we can help promote their successes to ministers and the press. We work in alliance with a number of other funders, organisations and people to make these changes happen and are keen to promote areas of philanthropy and activism that are currently unfashionable and underfunded.

Antigone is closed for any further grant applications for the remainder of 2013.

The prison service currently costs the government around £13 billion a year, but most of this is invested in prison and probation services, i.e. incarceration and custory, with very little left over for support services that address root causes of offending behaviours. Mental health care, drug treatment and helping those leaving prison to find employment and housing is heavily bolstered by independent funding through foundations such as Tudor Trust, Lankelly Chase and the Bromley Trust as well as individuals.
