More About The Organisation
We provide grants to help people rebuild their communities. We are particularly interested in neighbourhood projects, community arts projects, projects involving community service by young people, or projects set up by those who are socially excluded.
We also support innovative projects to promote excellence in teaching (at any level, from primary schools to universities), though we never support individuals.
We aim to refresh the parts that other funding sources can't reach, especially new ideas and unpopular causes.Because we don't appeal to the public for funds, we can take risks.
Because we are mostly run by volunteers, we can afford to make very small grants, without our funds being eaten up by administration costs.
We favour small projects - often, but not always, start-ups. We try to break the vicious circle whereby you have to be established to get funding from major charities, but you have to get funding to get established.
