In December 2022, we approved our new Strategic Plan
2023 – 2027, propelling our organization into a fresh operational dimension and placing a strong emphasis on project development and collaborative efforts with stakeholders.

By addressing healthcare, social protection, and financial inclusion, we carve out a distinctive space in European Philanthropy, ultimately aiming at driving substantial change in the expansive realm of integrated welfare.

Simultaneously, we are actively constructing a comprehensive stakeholder engagement framework and nurturing partnerships with associations that share our vision and interests.

Our horizons are expanding as we extend our outreach to international communities, with the intention of establishing a robust network capable of propelling initiatives across Europe.

This strategic plan has been created with the aim of setting the stage for a promising and impactful journey ahead.

Our strategic objectives


Promoting equitable access to healthcare and contribute to the sustainability of healthcare systems.

Social Protection

Expediting conscious access to integrated welfare systems.

Financial Inclusion

Accelerating the adoption of digital payment methods to enhance financial inclusion within welfare systems, with a focus on vulnerable groups.

Our journey


Concept: integrated welfare

At Fast Forward Foundation, we consider “integrated welfare” as a dynamic synergy of public and private efforts, crafting tailor-made services that evolve with individuals throughout their lives. This holistic approach encompasses healthcare, income support, assistance for those in need, and lifelong learning. Welfare services can be provided by various stakeholders, including government agencies, non-profit organizations, and private entities.



Operational plan
2023 - 2026

Our three-year Operational Plan serves as the initial and significant step toward realizing our new Purpose. It takes an innovative methodological approach, characterized by an articulated project cycle.
The first phase involves the systematization of existing research within a specific project area, through the elaboration of reports and the organization of co-design workshops aimed at identifying the most effective interventions to address existing challenges.
The second step consists in the implementation of one or more “in-vivo experiments,” namely pilot projects aimed at testing the proper functioning of a previously developed and validated welfare mechanism.
The positive results of these experiments will enable scaling the project to a higher level of complexity to verify its viability in larger and more complex systems



Positioning: from research to co-generation

By addressing healthcare, social protection, and financial inclusion, we carve out a distinctive space in European Philanthropy, ultimately aiming at driving substantial change in the expansive realm of integrated welfare.


The strategy will be applied across seven project areas related to integrated welfare:
