In March 2020, we responded to the emerging crisis by broadening our categories to support those most in need at the height of the pandemic. This is just one example of how unexpected events can turn people’s lives upside down. We know we still have a long way to go, but as society starts to navigate a new normal, we want to concentrate our efforts on building a brighter, more sustainable future for people and the communities they live in. That is why we are refining our funding themes around two key areas:

  • Climate Action: Promoting healthy, thriving communities by preventing, preparing for and protecting against the impacts of climate change

  • Financial Wellbeing: Helping people take control of their wellbeing by giving them the tools to be more financially independent and ready for anything

Projects must:

  • Be raising funds to help:

    • Develop a new approach, product or technology; or

    • implement a new initiative or pilot a new scheme; or

    • expand existing services to a new area or beneficiary group; or

    • adapt services to meet today's needs without compromising those of future generations

All beneficiaries must be in the UK.
