Welcome to The Mullany Fund
The Mullany Fund is an educational charity that works to address the lack of social mobility within the healthcare professions.
Our objective is to inspire and support young people into careers in medicine and other related healthcare professions.
In 2010, the OECD reported that the UK has a worse social mobility record than other developed countries. The Going for Growth report found Britain showed the strongest link between an individual’s and their parents earnings.
Helping Young People Climb The Ladder of Opportunity
Currently, only 11% of UK doctors are from the lowest socio-economic group. If this low social mobility continues, the talents of thousands of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds will be wasted because of the practical and perceptual barriers they face.
Our vision is of a nation where talented, motivated individuals are not excluded from a career in medicine or healthcare because of poverty or any other disadvantage.
We feel that access to knowledge is key to widening access to education. Not all young people have the social networks around them to make informed choices.
