Manprit Vig joins Big Society Capital as the first 2027 Associate. 2027 is a new, paid training programme that prepares brilliant professionals from working class backgrounds for decision making roles in the grant-giving sector.
Prior to joining Big Society Capital, Manprit was a Community Links Project Coordination for Refugee Support at the British Red Cross.
Over the last twenty years Manprit has developed extensive experience delivering frontline services across varying sectors, with the last decade focussed on supporting vulnerable people and predominantly meeting their housing needs/homelessness prevention. During that time he has provided frontline housing support to vulnerable people, often with multiple and complexed vulnerabilities, affected by mental ill-health; domestic violence; older people; young people leaving the care system; and substance misuse.
