Our Priorities

Your work should align with one or more of our funding priorities:

 Community development – activities that connect local people, strengthen relationships, and build inclusive communities where everyone feels valued and welcomed.

 Improving the local environment – activities that make local places more vibrant, green and sustainable, helping communities adapt creatively to the challenges of our fast changing world – economic, environmental and psychological.

 Caring for vulnerable people – activities that serve the special needs of local people, enhancing their wellbeing and helping to ensure everyone can live a good life in their local communities.
