Our new strategy will launch in October 2020.
Over the next five years, we aim to improve our natural world, secure a fairer future and strengthen the bonds in communities in the UK.
We do this by contributing all that we can to unlock change by people and organisations with brilliant ideas who share our goals.
Using all our tools
Working in collaboration with others, we use all our tools to achieve our goals. So, in addition to funding brilliant organisations through grants and social investment, we are taking a more active role ourselves: brokering alliances, using our influence and removing barriers.Our support
Using our experience and expertise, we work in partnership with other funders and organisations to co-design solutions and influence larger initiatives so that we can effect broader change. This includes exploring new approaches to funding to increase our reach and share learning. Examples include our funding partnerships such as the Act for Change Fund, Local Motion and Arts and Culture Impact Fund.Funding partnerships
