Contact us

We are a small foundation, with a number of ongoing partnerships. We therefore only have a limited capacity to take on new projects and are primarily focussing on small-scale newer charitable organisations - those that are less than 4 years old and with an annual income of less than £200,000.


Our focus is on projects that use participatory activity to empower disadvantaged individuals and groups, enabling them to overcome some of their challenges and to contribute positively within their communities.

There are many more projects that fit these criteria than we can help. We are building a learning community with our partners and so we consider how any application fits with our existing network.

We are unable to support projects that are primarily delivering a service (eg advice & signposting) and we cannot fund one-off events or refurbishment / capital costs.

With this in mind, if you have a project that you would like us to consider, please tell us a little bit about it, who it benefits and how, where you heard about us and why you think your project would be a good fit for us. We do not have an application form - and we need the broad framework rather than lots of detail at the first stage, as we will always visit a project that we are considering developing a partnership with.
