​   banner.jpg Our Values


We fund projects that:

  • focus on neighbourhoods and communities of interest,

  • where people are developing lasting relationships at a grassroots level,

  • with the potential for positive, longer term change,

  • that are willing to try out new ways of working that others can learn from,

  • that focus on improving the lives of people experiencing the most social and economic hardship,

  • that enable people to be agents of change in their own lives and communities.
