What We Fund

We fund a wide variety of work and can support core costs, specific projects and we occasionally contribute to capital schemes.

Our focus is public engagement with culture, including arts, dance, museums, and heritage, especially when this has benefits such as improved wellbeing and life opportunity. We also support work that improves the choices of people experiencing disadvantage and inequality, including homelessness, and refugees and asylum seekers.

We fund work and projects that helps older people to live well, especially those experiencing isolation and complex health needs.

We help projects that support the environment and climate, and connect people with nature; we also occasionally support work overseas, especially emergency relief.

Recent awards have included English National Ballet who use dance to support people living with Parkinson’s; RefuAid and their ongoing programme supporting refugees to have their professional qualifications accredited in the UK; Horatio’s Garden, funding activities at the garden at the spinal injury unit in Shropshire; and the Museum of Homelessness to establish their site in London and develop their public programme.
